Two Days Off

Well It seems the magical spot that I originally had this x-ray taken in the fall for is acting up again!! I think its a terrible shin split.... 3/4 the way up inside left calf. BOO. It goes away after I start running, but it hurts walking around now. Im on my hardcore RICE plan- with I standing for ibuprofen and ice! 
That said Monday I ran 4 miles, stupid shin hurt the whole way and yesterday I ran 1 mile on the elliptical. It was the best elliptical ever I actually felt like I was running with ZERO pounding. It was a startrac brand? 
Anyways I did my lifting thing as well and have decided no running till next week. Just some elliptical and weights with a whole day-o-rest today and tomorrow! Fortunately its cold out. However city sports had a sale and I got some snazy cold gear underarmour tights to be able to run outside in comfort. I love spandex!  I suppose doing the elliptical only this week as fine and I had planned for a "kick back week" since I have been increasing my weekly milage pretty steady. Funny how I plan safe ways to go about doing this... with built in rest and kick backs and my stupid shin still kills!

Elliptical is great for those days you need to take it easy.

I just bought J some Under Armour tights for Christmas. Those things are so damn expensive! Maybe now that they are on sale, I can get a pair for myself.

Hope the shin heals up soon.
