Running with April & Shoulder Injury

This past week I've started running short distances with April so we can burn off a little bit more of that puppy energy on our walks. I've been running with her no more than a half a mile 2-3 times a week. I figure I will work her up to a mile. She is little so I don't want to wear her down too much!

The training had been going well until this past Saturday, although I didn't know anything was wrong until Sunday. At some point during our Saturday run I sprained my shoulder when I was running with her. I was in so much pain Sunday that I couldn't even lay down without my shoulder bothering me. I had a hard time sleeping Sunday night and when I woke up Monday it was no better so I made an appointment with my doctor to have it looked at. I was looking to avoid a serious injury before we begin our half marathon training. She diagnosed me with a sprain and gave me some exercises and some pain killers to help me get better. I guess I need to get more focused on strength training if I'm going to run with my little running buddy!!!
