I logged another 3.6 miles today, but I still fell short of this week's mark. I'm not disappointed at all though. I completed the base mileage and still tacked on an extra 3.2 miles on top of that, so I'm on my way. Just means I have to tack on a bit more in the coming weeks to make up for it. But overall, if I got behind anywhere, I would have predicted it to be the first couple weeks. You really don't want to increase your mileage too fast. It could result in shin splints, a stress fracture, burn out, muscle aches, etc. I've got a slight feeling of shin splints which I will be icing and heating today, but overall I'm feeling good.
Tomorrow is supposed to be the Christopher Martin's 5k race in New Haven. I was informed today that online registration is closed. That means I'm supposed to register in person in New Haven today; not exactly sure what's going to happen with that, but I'll keep ya' posted. Either way, I think the three of us who planned to run could still manage to map out a 5k and just run it ourselves if push comes to shove (wherever that phrase came from).
Ok, it's time I attempted to make a dent in this hunger I have. Then off to do some holiday shopping. Does anyone have any really cool or unique gift ideas they came up with this year for someone?
