With my run today I have completed week 7 of C25K and once again, felt very strong. The boys have been going with me every now and again and that always helps me.
My wife has decided to rest her shins rather than continuing to aggravate her shin splints. The disappointment of having to stop after making great progress is evident in her face. I think she’s doing the right thing though. Giving herself time to recover will end up saving her an even longer lapse at some point in the future.
As is very typical of her, even though she’s in pain, she continues to encourage me to keep going. She even started to look at 5Ks for me, knowing that she won’t be able to run. I love her.
At the moment, the Mason Mini 5K on November 8th is the front-runner.
