Well, after my last 5K a couple weeks ago I decided I wanted to another one quickly. I’ve probably over trained the past couple weeks since then and this past week I took it much easier after grinding out around 30 miles of running in an 8 or 9 day span. I had a great 6 mile run with a friend last Sunday but ever since my legs have been feeling it. I did a 2 miler on Tuesday and my right shin really hurt. Damn those shin splints. So in the interest of not aggravating that I only did cross training after that. I really just have to do that more. It would help if I didn’t keep dropping my training. I may also look into some better padded shoes.
I went running with a friend from a former client today. I have him on my Ragnar Relay team and we’ve been trying to hang out for a few months now. We did 6 miles and overall I was pretty happy with it. We finished in just about 10:00 min/mile pace. It was a nice way to get the morning started and then we hit up a place called Smoke for a brunch afterwards.
