Rockstar 8K

Okay, I have been avoiding blogging because I'm injured and am off my training schedule...way off.  My Half is in 3 weeks and I'm more than a little nervous.

Results of my Doc appt - tendonitis (as expected) and, if that wasn't enough, shin splints.
  • Good news - The Doc didn't tell me to change my shoes or quit training
  • Bad news - Wearing an ugly ankle brace and not allowed to run hills
  • Worse news - The Half is a hilly race with a pretty major hill toward the end
  • Good news - Cutting back on running seems to have helped
  • Bad news - I've been off my program for three weeks and my longest continuous run, as of today, is 6 miles...
  • Good news - After the race I won a 60-min massage!
  • Best news - This felt like an easy run
