I really like that my running diary counts the weeks for me. I don’t have to keep track.
I’d like to say that last week was another week of smooth sailing, but it wasn’t. Runner Boy came down with a sinus/ear infection, and Tiny Boy got the flu. Friday was the only day last week that both boys were in school. Thankfully they are both on the mend again. Runner Boy is back to his work outs, although running isn’t super fun for him right now. Being a preteen is rough stuff. Was I this sullen and moody when I was 10 years old?! Mom…don’t answer that.
Despite all of that, I got my workouts in.
Monday, January 29: Rest. Shin exercises.
Tuesday, January 30: 4 mile Easy. 38:22/9:35 pace. Right shin and calf tight.
Wednesday, January 31: 5 mile Easy. 48:30/9:42 pace. Wore calf sleeves during run.
Thursday, February 1: Rest. How is it February already!?
Friday, Feburary 2: 3.5 Fartlek. 33:16/9:30
Saturday, February 3: Rest. Grad school. My brain is tired.
Sunday, February 4: 80 minute Long Run. 9 miles…oops. I like round numbers. 1:27:22/9:42 Downtown Y track. I miss spring/summer/fall.
My shin is definitely on the mend. It didn’t bother me at all Sunday or Monday, but today it’s a little off. I’m staying on top of the PT exercises, foam rolling, and stretching.
Stay neon! And have a great week!
