I bought a new pair of running shoes today, the Asics Gel Nimbus 11, in pink! They fit really well and they match my tri outfit as well and let's face it that is what is most important, right?! Here is a picture...
Todays workout was an easy one, nothing major just a 4 mile run/walk. I decided to take walking breaks as I am trying to build up my mileage running outside as opposed to the tread for two reasons, one is the heat and the second is my shin. It worked well and I still managed to carry a decent time. I was going to take the day off as this morning I was pretty sore, but I found the run to be relaxing( except for the 95 degree heat index, LOL!) and it was just what I needed. I still have not found a way to beat this pain in my left shin but it will NOT overtake me, I will somehow find a way to make it through this!!!
Tomorrow is my long swim/bike/run/ST day...FUN!! I love that day!!
Keep pressing on!!
