8 Miles - Check.
Ran 8 miles on Saturday. The cool part? It took me less time to run 8 this year than it did to run my 10K last October. THAT, my friends, is accomplishment!
I don't know if I'm on track to do a sub-60min race at the 10K, but it is still on my radar.
This week's plan:
10/1 ~ Monday: Two miles in 20 minutes // Circuit class
10/2 ~Tuesday: Rest
10/3 ~Wednesday: Four miles (dreadmill) // Circuit class
10/4 ~Thursday: Six miles (trail)
10/5 ~Friday: rest
10/6 ~Saturday: 10 miles (trail)
10/7 ~Sunday: Rest
I have to say, I felt awesome after my 8 miles on Saturday. I stretched at the park, then came home and sat in a cold bath for about 10 minutes. Chilly, but it did it's job. I took a shower then popped two Aleve, yay for no knee pain!
However, after my "easy 2" on Monday, my shins were so.sore. Thankfully the trainer in the circuit class showed me some stretches that relieved the pain and I haven't felt it since!
I will be stretching my shins a bit before my run tomorrow and Thursday for sure!
I just read the other day to wean from caffeine
