Rock it out

On Tuesday, I was convinced that my shin splints had returned. I had all the symptoms that I've had the previous four years I've battled the stupid things. But, after stretching the hell out of them Tuesday night and Monday afternoon, and switching back to my road shoes, I was able to run my scheduled 3.5-miler yesterday and I totally rocked it out. The report doesn't show pace, but I ran almost a mile-and-a-half in the 10:00-10:40 minute/mile range. Okay, it was downhill for a good portion of that stretch, but still. That's the fastest I've run for a distance longer than just sprinting across the street ever. This is pretty significant for me. Here's the report.

The only downside is that I'm now running in my road shoes. I didn't anticipate using them for another month, which means they're probably going to need to be replaced before the HM. These shoes have been discontinued and are rather difficult to find. I might have to consider moving to the newer model.
