I am back after an exciting weekend!! Saturday was my daughter Angelica’s 15th birthday and we took her to the cheesecake factory to celebrate….no pics because the ones we got came out way too dark 🙁 Sunday was my anniversary plus Super Bowl Sunday!!! I am happy to report, as you already know, that our Giants won!!!!!! Our Superbowl party pretty much left out of commission all day yesterday but I feel fantastic today and ready to run!!!!
My shin was finally pain free on Friday so I ran a slow 2 miles with my husband and it was pain free!!!! Post run I foam rolled, stretched and continued to wear compression (I have been wearing my Tommie Copper compression sleeves and ankle sleeves…review to come soon). I rested on Saturday and ran another slow 2 miles on Sunday….I had no pain during the run but post run my shin hurt. The shin hurt when I walked and it was also very tender when I pushed on the area with my fingers….can you say disappointing 🙁 I iced, compressed, foam rolled, stretched and I am happy to report I have no pain today!!!
I am going to run today and I am keeping my fingers crossed that my shin holds up! I got some new sneakers, the Saucony Kinvara, at the suggestion of other bloggers and my Facebook pals. I wore these on my Sunday run and they seem promising….only time will tell. I am hoping to run slow this week and ease back into training by next week since the NYC 1/2 is only 6 weeks away. I am obviously not going to be running that race for time at this point but I would like to at least run it considering it has taken me so long to get accepted!!!
