Sunday: x1 week on SuperCissus. It says it takes about 2 weeks to build in your system, here's hoping it does! What I have read and heard about, it's supposed to amazing for joints, and muscles. Will keep you posted.
AM: work :(
PM: 6.5 mile run
I felt a slight tightness to the mid-inner right shin area, as I started, but as I warmed up it subsided. Both legs felt fine (though slightly fatigued from yesterdays spin/body pump combo) a very few times, I felt a tinge on my right shin, where I described earlier; but all in all, run felt good, the day was beautiful, shin pain has definitely decreased and is definitely feeling like it is on the healing side of things. I plan to increase my running slowly back up, by alternating my days I run, and keeping the miles low...for now :)
I really don't know what has been wrong last 3-4 days; my body has just been so tired and fatigued. I am eating balanced (except for last night, I had chips and salsa for dinner) I am feeling like I used to working the night shift; just exhausted. Whatever it is, hope it passes soon....knowing my body, I'm going to hit that proverbial "wall", and just sleep for 24 hours. (which I did a few time last marathon season)
AM: Body Pumpx1hour (Success, I woke up early!) R shin is quiet today; post 6. 5 mile run yesterday, the silence is great!
PM: Spinx1 hour
PM: track- 4.5 miles total
WHAT A GREAT NIGHT!!!! I felt strong, I felt amazing, I felt no where near tired, I felt like the old me!!!...Can you tell I'm on a runners higher currently?!
It was freezing, and the wind was crazy...but it was my best run since pre-break. Shin is good! Met a new pace partner, and she was awesome to run with...
1 mile warm up
1x1200 (watch was off)
1x800 (watch off)
brief cool down...then ran into my warm car!
PM: Pool Runx1 hr (6miles)
AM: 4 mile easy run during lunch break
PM: body pump x1 hr
Body feels great this week! I think this has to do with 2 things:
1. training smarter
2. Super cissus
LTRYW is Sunday; plan to just go with how I feel....
AM: x1 hour massage!!
Packet pick up for LTRYW
easy 3 mile run
total miles: 24
One of my BEST weeks since pre-injury. Body was quiet, no protesting. Thanks for everyone, who a month ago, talked to me and said to basically "calm down, and train smart!!" Tough love, but definitely needed. My running is much happier and stronger since I stopped stressing, and focused on being smart (and relaxed about training) Love my friends, and running club. :)
