Training

Week9Day1

A six mile short cut from CHS. Head over to the reservoir and then looped back to newton street via JD auto. No way compensates the 15mile run I had to do yesterday. New route and home by 5. Good days!

Rest

The left shin looks to be in trouble and running seems to be stressing it further. I think it’s time to take some steps back and let the body recover.

Week8Day7

Decided to make today a rest day. Yesterday’s 8 miler,the shin pain and the frigid weather seem to have nuked me totally. Looks like I’m drained physically…

Week8Day6

Painful 8 miler at Middlesex fells. Shouldn’t have hit the trails this quickly. Looks like the shin needs to recover a bit more. The weather didn’t make things easier either. Super windy with temps in sub 15F. Today totally ‘felt’ like being out there in the wild. Hopefully the weather gets better tomorrow.

Week8Day5

Someone chickened out and did just 4.5 miles instead of 6. Looks like this week is all downhill in terms of mileage. Regular VFW loop.
