Life, Running

TGIF

Friday is here! I am beyond excited about it, although I am feeling a bit grumpy. This was supposed to be the weekend I ran the St Louis 1/2 marathon. Although I wish I would have pushed harder, it was the right decision not to run it. The concussion and stomach bug after that both knocked me back.

This week I was able to run 6 last weekend for my last run with my gym membership. Monday I headed outside, in the start of the snowstorm, ran 2.5 miles to a Hip Hop workout class, and got a ride home from a friend.

Since Monday, my right shin has been bugging me, and I have been too afraid to run. I think it’s a tight calf, but initially I could only feel it in one spot and was worried about a stress fracture (I tend to overthink everything). On top of being afraid to run, we had a multi-day snow event with wind, hubby had a stomach bug, and last night I had an event for the Octoberfest I help plan in our town. (Really, I let my life get in the way of my running as an excuse).

Tonight I’m hoping to plug a few miles in between running kids.

May will be busy now that I’m filling in on a relay team for the Eau Claire Marathon Relay, and Ragnar Chicago.

What do you do to help get past your brain blocks in training? What are your favorite late winter/early spring running tips?
