No really – THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY! This week has been pretty challenging at work and my peers and I are currently wondering if someone handed out a special Kool-Aid that made everyone dumber than a box of rocks. It actually made me picture the Kool-Aid man yelling “Oh yeah!” as folks drank the sugar-syrup stupid flavor and then ran straight to my desk…

Poor Kool-Aid Man. I actually like the stuff but that whole Jonestown thing really did a number on him.

Anyway, it’s been a long week and I’m so happy for the long weekend. I’ve got some awesome training runs, bikes, and swims scheduled and I can’t wait to head to the beach for Memorial Day. I need a beach day fo’ shizzle!

In other workout related news my left shin has been bothering me off and on for a little bit and I’m thinking it’s because of my beloved Asics Gel Noosa’s. You know the ones that are colored like unicorn vomit? (Not to be confused with Unicorn Tears, obvs.)

I’ve only worn the Noosa’s at my 5K’s and track, plus the tri’s. I haven’t worn them during any long runs and I’ve felt fine during those. I just think that the Noosa’s don’t have enough cushion for my pushin’. Heh. I still adore them because they are so disturbingly bright and unicorm vomit-ty. Le sigh. I guess I’ll just wear them to spectate and direct traffic.

If the pain stops then I’ll know for sure. It feels like a shin splint which is odd because I’ve actually been running less due to the biking and swimming. Overall, I’m not too worried about it though. Carry on!

I plan on a long run, long bike, and long swim this weekend and I can’t wait. I hope you all have lovely long weekends too! Holla.
