30 mins to freedom

After Saturday’s short run I took Sunday off and then ran an easy 30 minutes with Carrie on the boardwalk on Monday. An awesome sunset run by the beach! For some reason, I don’t really like these runs on my own but I love doing them with Carrie. Helps me to ignore the over-crowding of spring breakers and tourists and just focus on the run and the views.

I had little to no issue on Monday night so I decided to go out again this morning for another 30 minute run. Again, I kept the pace moderate, ~8:15, and had no problems at all. I think I’ve figured out the shin pain and I’m pretty sure it’s not the same thing I had last year. It seems to be directly related  to foot strike and perhaps shoe choice. Gonna play around with a few things on the next couple runs and see how it goes.

Still keeping my fingers crossed, but I’m hopeful and starting to cautiously plan for the next few months.
