So I have been having some high ankle, low shin pain over the last few weeks. It became extremely pronounced in my long run over the weekend. A half marathon definitely did me in a little bit, and so I started icing, doing some stretching and strengthening that I have learned. I was starting to worry that it might be shin splints. But it wasn't terrible, and yes, I kept running.
Yesterday, after my 6 miler, I realized that my shoes hit 405 miles. I retired my last pair at 400 miles because I was starting to have glute/hip pain (remember my hip pain a few weeks ago?) so I decided it was time to officially turn them into walking shoes. I created this on instagram last night and tweeted it out to commemorate the occasion.
I hit the gym this morning for a little bit of speedwork. I did that because J was planning on getting up and using the home treadmill, so I decided on MWF I could go and workout at the gym, and he can have the treadmill on those days (he ended up staying in bed, which irks me, but that is beside the point).
Here is the speedwork that I hit up at the gym.
And here is my #PROOF shot, in my brand new #sweatpink tank!
What do you think about taking it easy v. pushing when pregnant? I push, but am WELL within my comfort zone and feel like I could push MORE (sometimes, obviously, not always) and still be able to carry on a conversation, etc.
