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.
Ha! That reminds me, I was in a lulumon store the other day and they asked if I had any race pics related to their products. Apparently they are trying to get people to post them to the store's fb page. I said I didn't, but that I sure knew someone who does! I mentioned your shirt and Red's spectating poster-ode to the shirt and the girl in the store just lit up and was like, "post it, post it, please!" So I promised I'd tell you. And then I forgot.
Your total opposite of me.. all that cushion makes me run harder and does nothing to keep me from getting injured.
I hope that it's your shoes, just so that it's an easy fix to stop the pain.
That picture is hilarious.
I hope the shoe switch fixes your shin, though it will be sad if you can't race in a complete unicorn-related outfit.
Im with you sister – so glad its YAY-day (aka TGIF)!! I've also had a LONG week and look forward to drinking wine and training this weekend. Enjoy your long workouts!
Hopefully it's just the shoes and you'll get back to having happy shins. Have a great weekend, it sounds like it will be full of exercising!
Oh, I finally ordered some artic ease and can't wait for it to get here! Thanks!
If it's just the shoes, you can stop wearing them and the pain will go away. That would be best even though it mean you can't wear your beloved Noosa's anymore
