A little late posting this one, but here’s a recap of week 3 of my London marathon training which was a complete fail! Running on the concrete has always been pretty hard on my body, so running for 2 days and 16.2 miles on the Arizona concrete really did a number on my shins. So much so that I was totally out of commission for a few days.
I took a 3 day rest, and attempted to run on the treadmill on Thursday, the shines were screaming! It wasn’t totally painful, but uncomfortable enough that my little walk run that I was doing just couldn’t be sustained. So I headed to the weights and did a little strength training. Check out my video below, or CLICK HERE to view.
I switched out my sneakers to the Adidas Ultra Boost which have a lot more cushion then my usual light weight sneakers. Now, while this felt much better, and I had less shin pain, it was still there and I didn’t want to push it, so I got in a very easy 2 miles that day.
It was a pretty light week training wise, but something is better than nothing, and I’d rather be safe and keep my self healthy, than be injured on the sidelines.
