Ouch! Shin-splint type pain and tight lower calves and achilles. I was hoping a rest day would help. Sadly, not so much. I have been stretching since I got home...stretched for 20 minutes after workout, stretched again 20 mintues later, and again about 30 minutes later. I have also been drinking a lot of water since I got home. Well...when I've been able to keep Doozer out of my cup. She's a water-loving cat and drinks by sticking her front pay in the dish/bowl/cup/bathtub/puddle and then licking it off her paw. Since I've gotten back, I've had to refill my cup 3 times because of paw-invasion and then she just knocked over a full cup onto the wood floors!!!!! If you hear about a cat being murdered tonight.....it wasn't me.
The run was great, despite the pain. No crazy dogs. The weather was even tolerable. It has snowed about 3+ inches since Monday evening. I'm a big snow fan, but I'm getting tired of it. Snow, you can go away now. I want spring! I want to run that trail!
Off to the grocery store so we can eat this week.....Happy running!
