Day 36 Rt 66 Challenge: An Easy Going 6 Miles

Monday, November 11, 2013

Yesterday afternoon I decided to see how I felt after a longer run since I have had problems with my shin 2 weeks ago. I picked a 6 mile out and back course on a trail that follows along a nearby lake because it would be easier on my leg than running on pavement or concrete. The added bonus was that my husband could take AMC and ARC to the playground while I ran. I was a little nervous so I chose to go out at my comfortable pace just to work on getting the miles in and get a feel for the run. The run felt good and I kept wanting to go faster to see if I could but I held back and stayed at my 11:30 pace. I have less than 2 weeks to my race and I do NOT want to overdo it between now and then and ruin any chance that I have of running a great race.

    I liked the initials!! One of my Sparkfriends on another tram refers to his kids (both teenagers) as "Thing1" and "Thing2"!

    Awesome job. I've dealt with soreness and minor injuries too during my training. If you have a foam roller, it might help to roll out your calves, since that may be what's pulling on your shins. Also ice immediately after the run if you can. Good luck with Route 66. It's going to be my first half and I'm nervous, but I know it will be fun.

    Great self-discipline. BTW, what is "AMC" and "ARC"?
