I had some issues with shin splints last week and was unable to run for a few days. After a few days of rest and help from my new PT, I was able to get back on track toward the end of the week. I think I had a pretty decent week and I am pain free this morning. I am trying to be patient with the recovery process but it gets frustrating when you take one step forward and then one step back again. I have experienced the ups and downs of the running roller coaster lately but I am thankful that I am able to run again. My pace is slower than what I would like to see but I have to count my blessings, right?
Here is a Recap of My Week:Monday: 1 Mile Run and 5 Miles on the Elliptical
Tuesday: REST due to shin splint
Wednesday: REST AGAIN
Thursday: and REST AGAIN
Friday: Ran 6.2 on the Treadmill
Saturday: 3.5 Mile Jog/Walk on the Treadmill
Sunday: Ran 7.3 on the Treadmill
TOTAL MILES FOR THE WEEK: 18
My weekend was pretty relaxing. We attended a birthday party for a family member and I also spent some time with my mom. The theme for the birthday party had something to do with Nerf guns so my son went well prepared for battle and had a great time!
This weekend will be a busy one with a couple of exciting events on the agenda. I hope they happen!!
