8 miles -- 6 miles barefoot. 3 grass loops around sugarhouse park. [when i say grass, i really mean mud/dead pine needles]. i'm trying to sort out the tightness in my right shin and calf, which has been bothering me for a few weeks now. the barefoot running seemed to help. 

PM: weights, monster walk and plank with james. i will be sore.

it's that time of year again. time to celebrate the [2nd annual] Third Week of March Crash and Burn. it is quite simple: run all winter long and build up a nice mileage base. when the weather gets warmer and the races get closer, stop running. 

i have been experiencing an odd tightness in my right leg for the past two weeks, which evolved into localized pain on my shin/lower knee. i could still run on it, but i was becoming more and more nervous as it became more and more painful with each run. on tuesday i ran barefoot, which actually made it feel much better due to the lighter footfalls and cushioning of the grass. unfortunately it's not feasible (nor safe) to run barefoot in sugarhouse park at 4am (just ask the shopping cart man). so that was not the solution. wednesday i ran one mile and then limped home, finally giving in to the fact that i was going to have to take a few days off and fix this now before it gets any worse.

this injury follows the same pattern of all my previous injuries. more work-->more stress-->more running to protest (balance) the work and stress-->less sleeping-->less eating-->snap. injured. so i know exactly what led to this, but for the most part these things are out of my control. i do the very best that i can to eat and sleep, but it certainly isn't always ideal.

i guess it isn't too bad, because really the only thing i had going in my training this winter was consistency. no workouts. no racing. now no running. the good news is that the last two days of rest seemed to have really helped, and my shin is already feeling much better (although i haven't tried running yet so i could be wrong). i assume with a couple more days of cross training, everything will be fine. it's always better to take a little time off now than a lot of time off later -- racing season is ahead and i want to participate! wah. wah. wah. 

so about today: 45 minute spin session on the bike. 10 minutes warm up, then 1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1 minute hill simulators with varying amounts of rest between each set. james kept me company through the second half of the workout, which helped a ton. he was very kind to put up with my unreasonable amount of sweating, awful face contortions and inability to speak without gasp-wheezing. i don't love cross training.
