I just wanted to let everyone know that I have not fallen off the face of the planet if I don't post until next week. Instead, I think I'm taking a break from running for the next few days. My left shin is acting funny and I'd rather rest now than push through and risk being injured when my race schedule starts up in earnest in a few months.
That being said, I'll still be doing my bootcamp and using my indoor bike trainer as well as stretching and foam rolling. Which means my Weekly Workout Wround Up posts won't just read "Rest Day. Rest Day. Rest Day."
My shin has felt this way before but normally a good dose of stretching and a good night's sleep fix it right up. The ache is lingering a little longer this time, though, so I'm not sure what's up. I'm sure it will be fine, though. Apparently it could just use a few more rest days.
I'm bummed that I'm missing my interval workouts on Thursday and my long run on Saturday but I'm forcing myself to stay in. The downside of running with a group? Being bummed that you missed hanging out with them when you have to miss a run!
So stay tuned for my next weekly summary post so you can see what I've been up to in lieu of running.
