It was a good week. I'm ready to start running though. For real.
Monday: ITBS/shin routine, 30 minutes elliptical, walk 1 mile on TM at 4.2
Tuesday: ITBS/shin routine
Wednesday: 30 minutes elliptical, walk 1 mile on TM at 4.2
Thursday: Stretch for 45 minutes, Elliptical 30 minutes, ran/walked 2 miles on the treadmill in 25 minutes. This was my runnerversary! 2 years of consecutive running. I can't believe it. I had minimal shin pain on this run.
Saturday: Chinese Dragon Run.
Last week's goal: Go to bed at 11PM. Whelp. I was in bed by 11 on most nights, but I wasn't going to sleep until midnight. I'm such a night owl! What's wrong with me?!
This week's goal: Nice and easy on running- no more than 3 miles at a time and no more than 3 runs this week. If I can stand it- only run twice. I talked to my PT at the race on Saturday and this was his suggestion. I will add a half mile to each run each week. (So next week I will run three, 3.5 mile runs, and the next week can be 4 mile runs and so on and so forth).
Something is still up with my left leg. It feels kind of like a tight tendon or something? I don't know. I'm still icing, cross training, stretching, and foam rolling like it's my job. If only someone would pay me for it....
