Last night I ran 3.5 miles in 27:14. That’s a 7:47 mile. It’s not a lot faster than last Friday and it was significantly harder. I ran at a much more constant pace so it was probably a better training run. I pushed myself very hard. I felt a bit light headed at the end of the run.
My shins, I think, are starting to get better. I’ve been following a coworkers advice and poing some simple calve exercises twice each day. It’s too soon to know if this is really helping or not but I’m optimistic.
