Weekly RUNdown

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....

I hope the running goes well this week! And that the left leg (with all the unpaid work you're doing on it...not fair) gets feeling back to normal! It's always so disconcerting to run with there is still some pain... sometimes it ends up being okay and sometimes not so much... Anyway, I'm rooting for you!!!
