Run: 5/31

Goal: 3 miles —> knocked this down to 2 b/c of soccer later that evening

Path: ran from gym to park, 1 loop around reservoir & ran 1/2 way back to gym.

Intensity: tried to keep it at 11m/m to focus on pacing & b/c of soccer, don’t know if I would consider it conversational

Injuries: wore compression sleeves (& shorts) which helped with shin splints , hip had overall dull annoyance. Went to yoga right after to stretch it out.

Run: 5/30

It was a wonky start, hitting stop lights, iphone falling out of case – had to restart, runkeeper a little off.

Goal: 4 miles

Path: ran 1/2 way to park, loop around reservoir, loop on bridle path/lower reservoir

Intensity: tried to keep it at a conversational pace … eh. Dehydrated – didn’t bring water & didn’t stop at fountains (<— need to work on that)

Injuries: nothing major, usual hip / shin splints (wore compression sleeves)

2/5: Run

Goal: 4

Run: 5.09 

Time: 0:51:37 | 10:08

New sneakers. Awesome run. This should have foreshadowed shin splints. 

Fastest speed for that distance yet. 

Went super low (37) while running errands which delayed run, overcorrected and went up to 400. To prevent skipping run (and try out new sneakers!) I did 7 units. I had just under a serving of oatbran with peanut butter before heading out. 

Ended the run at 118.
