The Week That Was

Saturday: 0.67hr. treadmill run (zone 2)
Sunday: 3.0hr. stationary trainer ride (zone 2)

During Saturday's run tendons on outside of shins let me know that they've tightened up. This morning, lower back muscles let me know in the wake of Sunday that they've lost some endurance.

Figure I'll survive Florida 70.3, but mostly looking forward to training for fall marathon with stretch time goal.

I hate it when those shin muscles clamp up! I've been having a touch of that lately. Fortunately I just have a 5k, not a half-mary at the end of my next tri ;-)

The human body has a number of significant design flaws! The below-the-knee stuff is mildly vexing in all sorts of ways...

I've got to agree with Jenny.

That shin muscle is my nemesis. It leads to what I call my "flat tire", since it pretty much destroys any motion and my foot slaps the ground like a flat chunk of meat. And I never know when it's going to appear and how long it will last. It's a bastard, I tell you. A BASTARD!

Evil shins. And don't get me started on backs ...

Surviving is good, though!!

Glad to see some workouts this week but sorry to hear about the shin. Hope the uneven running surface at FL 70.3 won't aggravate them too much more.
