Modification has been the key to this week’s plan. If I want my shin splints to heal, I’ve gotta rest.
Monday: Cross training (1 hour Zumba class)
Tuesday: 2 mile run
4 mile run Cross training (30 minute intervals on the ArcTrainer +Abs)
Friday: Jillian Michaels’ Yoga Meltdown Level 1
5 mile run Rest
I skipped two runs this week. I know that it might hurt me in the long run, but I took the chance anyway. I really did plan to get in a workout today, but between church and a family get-together for Labor Day, it didn’t happen. Lately, I’ve found myself comparing my workouts with other bloggers’ workouts, and I feel like I don’t even do half of what other people do. I have to remember that everyone is different, and taking a rest day today was good for me — I don’t want to start getting obsessive. The good news is, my compression sleeves came in, and they seem to be helping, so hopefully my shins will be as good as new in no time!
