I didn't run Monday as per my schedule. I had run Friday, raced a 5k Saturday and did another 4k on Sunday. Shins were complaining a bit.
So I was good to me. Massaged myself, used analgesic cream, didn't run. Now I feel ready to go again.
My co-worker who's been training with me seems to be coughing a lot though. Don't know if the cold weather he ran in last week caused probs or he's just getting a cold.
If he doesn't go at lunch, I may not as well. I have my clinic class tonight and we are bumping our running time up to 8 minutes, walking 1. So I can just do that.
I told someone that race horses, when training, aren't running full out like they do when they race. They breeze. Spurts. They are athletes. I'm not a race horse but I am an athlete. Why not give ourselves the same credit.
Train well, train smart.
