I am taking a week off.
Yes - in the middle of half marathon training, I am taking a week off. No long run this weekend. No short runs this week. My legs are counting on me.
Mr. Pes Anserine Bursitis. A clear result of my not stretching well enough. The compensating is causing me to develop shin splints (overtraining might be playing a bit part in this as well). I don't like either but I think a week of rest, icing and stretching will be enough for me to come back smarter and stronger.
So, I won't have a long run report this week (unless you count this anti-long run post). I really want to finish strong in Vancouver and this week of rest is going to help me do exactly that.
I'll still be working out - my bike has been missing me anyway.
Take care of yourselves out there. RICE as necessary to keep yourselves running strong.
