Week in Review

87 miles
3 doubles
1.5 days in NYC
1.5 days in Boston
5 AFDs

Despite another hectic week of work, I was able to basically achieve my mileage goal. I would be lying if I didn't admit I almost snuck in three (junk) miles on Sunday evening just to reach 90, but fortunately I was sensible enough to talk myself out of it. Honestly, what's holding me back worse than my seemingly incessant travel is the nagging shin/posterior tib pain. Generally it's fine (although still noticeable) after I warm up for a few miles, but my first few steps of the day (as in both literally my first few steps out of bed and also my first few running strides) are quite uncomfortable. I'm rehabbing it with visits to Dr. Greenapple, ice cup massaging, strengthening exercises and compression socks, but as with any semi-injury I suppose it just takes time to heal completely. As long as it doesn't get worse I will continue to run on it. If it does regress further...well, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Off to DC for the majority of this week. Yay for running in my favorite city!
