I hope everyone’s Thursday morning has treated them well. 🙂 Well, I was so pumped up by reading about Chi Running that I decided to just go out and “practice” a little bit in the parking lot of my apartment complex. I really worked and concentrated on my form, my lean and keeping my lower legs limp. The first five minutes or so my shins felt very sore but then that faded away and I enjoyed the new running technique. The more I focused on keeping my lower legs totally limp and picking my feet up, the less strain I felt on my shins. I know, I know……..I shouldn’t have ran when I’m going to the doctor tomorrow but I really wouldn’t call what I did a “run”, per say. More like a brief 15 minute jogging/walking session in the parking lot. The way the soreness/ache went away after warming up made me think that maybe I can run slowly while having shin splints? Is that horrible? I guess the doctor will tell me the truth tomorrow afternoon….I don’t want to do anything to hinder recovery (obviously) but it felt good to stretch my legs and go slow. Does anyone have thoughts about this?
After the 15 minutes of whatever, I went to the gym and spinned for about 20 minutes. My butt was super sore from the seat yesterday though and I didn’t last as long as I hoped for. When I got home, I had a chobani with strawberries:
And then I put on my bikini and laid out by the pool =)
When I got back I made lunch: 1/4 cup hummus with 1 bell pepper, 1 carrot, cucumber slices, a serving of kashis, a pear and a string cheese:
I have a test on sugar tonight at school that I neeeeed to start studying for! I wish everyone a great afternoon!
