So this week was a bit of a wakeup call with some hard runs towards the end of the week and ligament or some kind of pain that I need to call about and make sure it is ok. I'm running slower and taking it easier as I start to expand! I feel like I grew overnight, really, over the last 2 nights and became huge.
Today I have shin splints (WHY?) and a sore bad knee. What causes the shin splints?
I woke up this morning and wanted to sign up for the Philly marathon. I realized last night that the half is sold out. Since I haven't had any great runs lately, I'm doubting myself, and at the same time trying to be rational, but on the other side is my I CAN DO IT attitude, with taking it easy and going slow. I really don't know! A part of me just wants to let it go!! And sign up for a spring one!
I haven't heard back from Boston charity #1 yet.
