Conked out and dropped pace during my tempo workout yesterday after 1.5km. Our target was to do 5k tempo at 6min/km. *Sorry Mesh, good thing you have internal speedometer hehe*
So what happened?!? Everything started to hurt! Knees … right and then left and then right shin. Maybe Vicky’s shin splint is contagious. 😛 So I dropped pace, inserted walking breaks and shifted to an easy 5K with a few speedbursts.
While doing my cooldown I noticed that the my shoelaces near the toebox to midfoot were a bit loose. Could this be the reason? Maybe my were feet sliding around too much? As I tightened them, I remembered that I kept on readjusting them before and during my Thursday treadmill run. I don’t know about you but I do have days when I can ‘t immediately figure out how tight/loose I want my shoelaces to be and it’s annoying. Maybe I should mark my shoelaces …
Back to the pain, not sure yet if it my shoelace was the culprit. I attended FinalCuts (free weights class with lotsa squats, lunges and hip hinges) before running so my legs could just be tired. Plus I ‘ve been running on the Newtons lately so my feet could have been readjusting to the Mizunos. A lot of maybes … but still one big IDontKnowWhy. Waah!
I vow to take it easy on Sunday. I think I will put in a lot of Abba and Beatles on my playlist … maybe even some Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin 😉
