Ran the Hot Chocolate 15k yesterday, not a great time (~1:18 with 2 minutes to let my GF catch up so we could cross the line together), but was a good distance run. Great course, and I think I ate 8 snickers afterwards.
2 miles in 17:40. I hurt my knee a few weeks ago and am working my way back up to my standard 5k in 28 mins (and then hopefully more). Shin splints have killed me; I was only able to run 1.5 miles and 1.7 miles with pain on Sunday and Monday. Took yesterday off and was able to do 2 easily today but didn't want to overexert. Wondering if I should run tomorrow or just bike.
5 miles this morning in 38 min. Coming back from nearly a month of not much running due to shin splints and felt pretty good today. Ran a 5k 2 weekends ago and blew up with shin splints after the first mile and hobbeled my way through through the 2nd before the pain subsided and I was able to run the last mile and a bit in under 6 min. Final time on the 5k was 20:38
