Friday, it took awhile to get the kiddo to bed and I had several things on my to-do list before school on Saturday. So, I ran/walked 26:30 minutes...2 slow miles. The shin was achey, so in an effort to rest it, I opted to walk most of that time. I was hoping less impact will help. Next, I iced it for about 15 mintues.
Saturday was my rest day. I was in class from 8 am until about 4:30 pm, then needed to do some grocery shopping, so there was little time for anything else. I have to give a big CONGRATS to my hubby though. He and his kayak fishing team managed to take 1st & 2nd place in a fishing tournament! His big catch of the day, and possibly the year was this 8 lb trout...
Sunday, I managed to get up and meet fellow Houston Fit-er, Kay, at the park. Kay just shaved off 40 minutes from her 2006 marathon time and finished last week in 5:03! I was suprised she was so eager to run, as I usually veg out the week after and maybe run 3 miles the following weekend. (Yes, I am usually a big slacker for at least 1 week!) Of course, I was eager to run outdoors, because I wanted to try out my new toy - my Garmin! We ran 6 miles at a pace that felt faster than the sluggish pace I have become accustomed to in the past month or so. Sure enough when checking my Garmin, we had run at a 10:30 pace! Thanks Kay for getting my butt moving faster again! The shin did well...it protested a bit during the 1st mile, but after than it was pretty quiet. I hope that's a good sign. And I love the Garmin. I'm sure I will love it more once I figure out how everything works.
Later, the kiddo and I went to play group, then had lunch with my friend Amy. Amy just walked/jogged the 1/2 for the 2nd time and I just found out that she may also be doing the 1/2 in Austin. Looks like we might have quite a few Houston folks representing H-town!
