    back for a break. my brain is exploding with specs.Shy


    rltw: enjoy dinner with your friend!


    dona: glad you're enjoying your work and the variety!


    outwest: you driving around in a big truck looking at desert plants sounds fascinating!


    monk: ooops! sorry about the big spill! I would not be in a happy place if that happened to me. I should post of pic of my desk.... absolute chaos! at least now you have a cleaned up desk!


    taylor: good for you watching your body. enjoy your pool run!


    norcal: good luck with the billing. and way to go on the 7 miles!


    back later....


      Sigh. My body is so predictable. I hit 250 miles on my shoes last weekend and I thought I could try and go another week or two before ordering new shoes ... but sure enough after my run this morning I had some tenderness on my right shin consistent with shin splints. Blast!


      So I'm ordering new shoes and stretching! This is a cut back week so I only have a 4 and 3 miler left to run. I'm trying to decide if I should just not run them and take some rest to heal up.




      I'll be running my first full, the Richmond Marathon on November 16, 2013!



        Sassy- Personally I'd at least take off one of the runs, maybe both, depending on how the shins feel. I know that when my calf started hurting, I took an entire 6 days off completely and that worked so well. If I had kept running, I think I would have been in big trouble!

        Tiburon by the Bay Half Marathon 11.3.2013 (My Birthday!) 

        Napa Valley Full Marathon 3.2.2013



        Half: 1:48

        Full: 4:34



          Don't feel bad about resting a bit to make sure there's no persistent shin issues. Since this is a cut back week, it's perfect timing for it.


            MA - i'm glad your DH is coming around on the money issues!

            Meli - Zumba! Have fun!

            Lizo - hahaha that kind of dinner is what I make when Big D is out of town!

            RLTW - have a great day!

            KlMcD - you'll have to update us on FB about the new job, unless I missed it!

            OWR - I'm never good at ST in the mornings, I feel like my body just isn't coordinated (or flexible) enough when I first wake up.
            MOnk - you are so close, any movement is good for you at this point!

            Taylor - good idea on the pool run.

            NC - good idea on taking a rest. I'll skip tomorrow's run. I've been pushing my paces a bit lately, too, so I'm sure my body could use the rest! I'm signed up for a full in November so I have to stay healthy this year!!


            I'll be running my first full, the Richmond Marathon on November 16, 2013!



              Dang I've had the day from hell...
