Plan for the Week!

First...... ^^^take a click up there and check out Team Gab! If you're in SoCal and looking for a spring race, we'd love to have you. Not in SoCal? Join us in reaching for a cure by becoming a virtual participant!

So, last week.....
Monday - nada
Tuesday - planned an hour cardio; did 35 minutes on the elliptical instead. Smelly kids drove me out of the gym.
Wednesday - not much
Thursday - test run! 3.5 easy miles. Jerk Shin decided to play nice.
Friday - rest
Saturday - Knott's Berry Farm and Team So Much Cooler Online meetup
Sunday - 8-10 miles planned; 11 miles DONE :D

So, the Shin is still off. If I poke at it, it HURTS. If I ignore it, and don't touch it, there's no trouble. I've been icing, elevating, and compressing, and all of that seems to help. After this morning's long run, I seem to be feeling okay. I've got until the 5th to decide for SURE if I want to run Long Beach, but so far, so good.

Next week.....
Monday - rest
Tuesday - 5 miles @ race pace (hopefully 10:18)
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - 3-5 miles easy
Friday - rest
Saturday - maybe a morning hike?
Sunday - 13.1

I'll be focusing on hydrating (because I normally suck at it....), and just resting up this week. I'm pretty wiped out right now. Yawn.

Hopefully the shin is better! Good plan!

I'm focusing on hydrating, too, because I also suck at it. On race week I usually use a Sharpee to write "HYDRATE" on my hand along my thumb area. It helps - sometimes.

I like that we have a half marathon on the same day. It's almost like we're racing together - but I predict you to smash my finish time by a lot!!

Now go drink some water!

**Later I'll comment on your prior post when I can see the photos from home!**

my shinny shin shins have been little a-holes too. What gives? The giant dog sat on my right shin last night and I cried actual tears. Ice feels good, but it doesn't take it away for more than 24 hours. Compression-depression.
What're girls to do?
Your Shin Sister,
