I ran 4 miles today from Megan's school after I dropped her off. Lots of hills! About 3/4 of a mile into the run I got a wicked case of shin splints. I'm thinking I'm gonna have to spring for those new shoes sooner rather then later.
It didn't feel too good, but I kept at it and I'm glad I did. Another great average pace (for me) for today of 12:11 ... over 4 miles ... whoohoo!!! Now I just need to decide if I'm gonna make it out tomorrow morning or not?!?
Running Time: 48:48
Running Distance: 4.01 mi
Average Pace: 12:11/mi
On the Pain Front ... shin splints, sore hip and a sore core (pilates related). Buying new shoes tomorrow ... hope that helps!
Yearly Tally: 7.01 mi
