Why am I awake at 2am?

My shins are continuing to bother me. I’ve been resting on off days and using ice and ACE bandages to relieve the pain. But I’ve also been running. I did 8 miles Sunday, 4 tuesday, 2.5 yesterday and I have 4 planned to tonight…. at least I hope to do 4 tonight.

I woke up at 2am with my legs throbbing. Especially my left one. I stretched a bit, and applied a little more ice. The pain went away enough but I was still tossing and turing all night.
This morning I took some Mortin & Tylenol, but I still feel a slight twinge when I walk. I’m going to keep “self medicating” through out the day as well as ice and wrap (boy am I glad I have my own office!). We’ll see how I feel after work. I really want to get in my 4 miles today to stay on track with my training program. Plus this run bumps me up to the next Nike+ level, which just makes me feel good!
After today I have rest days until Sunday when I need to do another 8 miles.
