I was running 3 to 6 mile in November.But it started all on one race. The Terri fox run.That was 6.2miles i think.It had 4 huge hills.I ran it in 42:24. Than me and my coach went to watch the state meet for highschool of hawaii. I was testing there pace when they were running in the state meet.Than my ankle started hurting alot. Like i couldn't walk. i wasn't really scared because i never knew about injuries alot. So time went by and i got over it about two weeds later. Than on January 11 04 i ran the hula bowl race 5 K some hills. 1 big hill. I ran it in 19:24.Iwas almost turning 15 years old. Than about 1 and a half week later on my own course .Its a accurate course. I ran a 3 miles in 19:04 by my self. I was suprised. So i called my coach and told him. He said i shouldn't go that fast at this month. But i never listened so i started doing mile repeats.My first mile was 6:30.I was supposed to keep that paste for 4 mile.rest 10 mil between. But i never so my second mile i ran it in 6:20 tahn my third in 6:00 and my last in 5:50. i could still do more i was addicted to running. So around february my shin stared hurting alot so i never ran for a month. Than track came along in march and i wasn't running alot because my shin. So i did kind off bad in track for 8th grade.I ran the 400 meters in 4:04 withou no running for 2 months. When i finished the race my legs were in shock.i feel to the ground.Than i never ran for a few weeks.because my ankle and my shin. So time went but until school ended.than i started running again. Road races.or track.So my knee started hurting.but i still ran because i thiught it was ok.i got worse and worse. so i stopped running. im never ran cross country or track in high school.I have pattela femoral syndrome. My knee cracks alot.My ankle hurts.I grew 6 inches since last year.my out side off my quads are stronger than my inside so my muscles are off balance. my pattela cracks alot know.I have knock knees.overuse and growing panes.I could be running 4:55 mile if i wasnt't injured. i would be JV champ.my knees hurt when i wake or if i just stay in one area and get up. i dont know what to do know but just wait.in 16 know. my pane comes and goes at some points.
