Not a lot happening in my world at the moment!!
I have banned myself from using the treadmill at the gym, in the hope that my shin splints will ease up (and they seem to be). I have discovered that there are a few different types of shin splints, depending on whether the pain is on the outside or the inside of the shin. I always thought that there was only one type, which is the pain on the outside of the shin (anterior) - because thats the only side I have ever got them!
Well anterior shin splints apparently can be caused by a few things, running on the toes (guilty!), walking up hill (guilty on Sunday), walking faster than normal (guilty on Sunday - Elke was pulling me along) - also I have always had a problem with walking on the outside edges of my feet (think this is called pronate)... and of course having old running shoes doesnt help!
So at the very least I should be able to buy myself a new pair of runners... in the interests of better health! (hey that's a great excuse! - honey I need new shoes!!)
Eating and training are going well, sleep seems to be my biggest problem at the moment. Its super stressful buying AND selling a house at the same time, and my sleep seems to be a bit disrupted. This morning when the alarm went off I discovered I had a dead arm (must have slept on it funny) so I rolled over and started flapping my arm all over the place, trying to find the damn alarm clock... no feeling in the hand at all... hehehee I had to chuckle, despite myself. Finally managed to find the off switch!
One more day until the weekend! I need a sleep in!
