Yesterday, September 4th, marked the official “half-way point” of my marathon training. Holy cow. So I booked the hotel room yesterday for the night before we fly out of Atlanta. Now it seems so real!
Also feeling real—shin splints.
This morning’s planned 8 miles did not happen. Managed to push through 3, but the shins they were a’screamin. Apparently it takes me 2 months of high mileage to break my shins in completely. But after soaking them in the ice bucket for 20 minutes, they are feeling better. Gonna shoot to complete 5 more miles after work-possibly on the treadmill.
Labor Day weekend was a delight for me & my family. Carl & I headed to Myrtle Beach to spend the holiday with my fam. Did some serious shopping, eating, & just overall down time with loved ones.
This weekend will be a busy one full of unpacking, cleaning, grocery shopping, & oh yeah-running 16 miles on Saturday!! 🙂
