Weekly re-cap

It’s time for the Saturday weekly re-cap. Softball games started for Ally this week so the evenings are a little busier now. Her team won their first season game, we are looking forward to a great season.

A friend asked me this week about shin splints. I suggested calf sleeves or compression socks. Whether this is helpful or not (it helps me) but I do this stretch to help my legs. It stretches out that muscle in the front/near the shin. I’m no doctor, I don’t know what that muscle is called, but it feels good! Usually I’ll do this while brushing my teeth.

Cross your legs like in the picture and then squat down, don’t bend over, but bend your legs. You’ll feel it.

This picture is from this morning. Apparently we like our shaker bottles. We were in a world of hurt Thursday night when they were all (5) in the dishwasher.

Now for a little training recap for the week!

Weekly training recap2

Sunday: 10 miles, 8:41 pace

Monday: Track workout, core and conditioning

Tuesday: Track, 8×200 with 200 recovery, 2 mile warm-up

Wednesday: 2 miles on the treadmill, arms and abs, and the sauna of course

Thursday: 5 miles

Friday: REST DAY!

Saturday: 8 miles, 8:20 pace

I am loving the track workouts! Monday and Thursday (if I go) is at night. It’s core, conditioning, sometimes speed drills, hill work, just about anything. Tuesday morning is speed work in intervals. I’m working on getting my pace down and getting consistent about it.

Looking forward to a great week. The weather here is really nice and we got some much needed rain last week.

Did you miss the Gone for a Run giveaway posted this week? You can find it here.  And the first Wednesday Wonderfulz link-up is here.

What do you do for shin splints or sore legs?

How many shaker bottles do you own? Be honest.

Did you workout today?
