September 7: Last week was the definition of taking it easy and I kept up with that theme this week as well. My shins are still bothering me a little. Not enough to keep me from running, but I’m nervous that they’re going to come back as painful as ever so I’m trying to incorporate a lot of walking in the grass as well as stretching with each jog. On this day, Kevo came with me and we walked five minutes and jogged .5 miles and repeated that. This wasn’t hard at all, and I just wanted to be able to RUN at least a mile without my shins hurting at this point.
- Mile 1 – 14:06
- Mile 2 – 13:28
September 12: I was getting antsy at this point and decided I wanted to run the majority of my workout so I walked the first five minutes and ran .75 miles and walked the rest of the way home. My lungs felt great, like I could have gone another 2 miles or so, but my shins, once again, started to burn a little at the end. Why, why, whyyyyyy. I came home and iced both of them right away and have been wearing my compression sleeves nonstop. What else can I do?
- Mile 1 – 12:57
- Mile 2 – 14:36
I only ran twice this week. I decided to give myself a break on Saturday since my shins were hurting on Friday. I think that was a wise idea.
