Training Tuesday

Last week my left shin was bothering me.  In fact it was so bothersome during my hill repeats last Tuesday that I took an ice bath when I got home.

It’s feeling much better now and didn’t give me much grief after that icing session on Tuesday.  But, I still had a pretty blah running week.  My legs felt tired all week, often like they were encased in bags of cement.  Luckily I was feeling better by the end of the week but I was still sluggish during my half marathon race on Sunday.

Last week:

05.14-05.20

Even though I was having an “off” week, I still completed each of my planned runs.  Cross training has gone by the way side, temporarily, since my shin was acting up.

Our “hill” for hill repeats

Tuesday = hill repeats.  They are not getting easier; do they ever?  Wednesday = easy run with my buddy Kat.  Friday = tempo run with the husband in the early pre-dawn hours (3 tempo miles = 10:26, 10:27, 9:59).  Saturday = pre-race shake out 5k run with my buddy Kat (10:24 avg) and post run coffee.  Sunday = Avenue of the Vines Half Marathon!  This was my 6th half marathon.

Once I finish my Big Sur Weekend recap then I’ll post a race recap from the half marathon last week.  It was a good race, though I’m not sure I would run it again.  Official finishing time = 2:34:31. 

This week is much of the same.  Though this weekend the husband and I will be running trails in my hometown.  We are both looking forward to it. 

10 weeks till SFM.
