I went for my first run today since I got shin splints last week. I wore the brace that Brandon lent me (what a nice guy), and it went a lot better than I imagined. I picked up where I left off, and did Week 2 Day 3 this morning.
The 5 minute warm-up walk went fine, and the beginning of my run it bothered me a bit, but it went away as I got further into it. Towards the end it started to hurt again, but once I stopped running it was fine. I stretched, and iced and I feel great now. :) I plan on swimming now to help with endurance. I'm behind in my c25k training, and I want to be ready for March 13th. I also have a doctors appt scheduled for February 15th, so if it still hurts by then I'll bring it up.
My new shoes are still awesome though. They are so comfortable! Huzzah! I also want to congratulate Ries on running 2 miles in 20 minutes. Yay!
Super Bowl Sunday is tomorrow, and we're going to have a few people over for pizza and lasagna. I'm really excited that Culvers is closing at 5:30 so everyone can watch the game! Dean earned bonus points there...
Have a great weekend! Happy training! Go Pack!
