Thank you for all of your comments on Friday’s post. It’s nice knowing that I’m not the only one with control issues .
Monday: Morning- 1 mile run + 12 minutes on the Arc Trainer Evening- 1 hour walk with a friend
Tuesday: Tuesday’s Daily Workout + 15 minute walk
Thursday: Flip A Coin Workout (x3)
Friday: The 5-4-3-2-1 Workout
Saturday: 6.5 mile run (using the Galloway method)
I was supposed to run 2 miles on Monday, but quickly realized that wouldn’t be smart — as soon as I got on the treadmill, my shins began throbbing. I also skipped Wednesday’s run because I woke up with a sore neck and back. The good thing is, I was still able to complete 6.5 miles on Saturday, and now I know that skipping a couple of runs won’t hurt my endurance.
I can’t believe that training is halfway over! As strange as it sounds, I am considering making this week a “no run” week. My shin splints aren’t showing much improvement, and I know it’s because I keep pushing through my long runs — mainly because I am afraid of skipping one. I am running the Pretty Muddy run next weekend, but other than that, I’m going to stick to cross training. We’ll see if it helps!
