The end of the school year, that is. Sorry for anyone looking for a running/training post. Sometimes life gets in the way. I'm finished my report cards and since they're due tomorrow, that's a good thing. Tomorrow is play day and it'll be hectic and fun in the morning, but easy going in the afternoon because the kids watch a movie. I am so far behind in other school stuff right now that it'll be good to get caught up a bit.
I did have a couple of good workouts this week. I had a good swim on Monday - the last day of the students' swim lessons. I did a warm up and then 4 X 200m, negative splits. On Tuesday, I rode to school, then rode to a meeting at noon, and rode home that afternoon, stopping at the LBS to get my gears adjusted. What a difference that made - no more slipping chain. I cruised up the old Paret Road hill this time instead of climbing Gordon.
Then before dinner on Tuesday, I decided to go for a run since my Sunday run went so well. Well, I didn't get very far without significant shin pain again. So I ran 5 minutes and walked one minute and packed it after only 3km.
I've been staying up late every night this week so I'm pretty tired. I was too busy on Wednesday and today to train. We had a staff meeting after school today and I got home late. My shins are still sore so I skipped the run because I knew it would just be painful. I doubt I'll be able to run tomorrow (time) but I hope I can do a longer run on Saturday and make up for it. If my shins still hurt, then I'll head back to the PT I guess. Argh.
I guess my plan for next week will be abbreviated as well because it's our last week of school and is bound to be busy.
Sat/Sun - at least one swim, bike, and run total. Mon - ? Tue - run Wed - ? Thu - run in am? Fri - rest Sat - on holiday!!
I guess I have to start thinking about how I'm going to train once my time is my own again.
And somehow, I HAVE TO get into the lake. Yes Paul, I know. I need to do it SOON! :)
