Hello everyone! How did everyone do this weekend? Jolt I read your cc report and that sounds like you had a blast! And in vffs, too. Impressive!

I was out all day Saturday on the mountain bike and we were staying at my MIL's overnight so Sunday I did not get in my long run. It was just hard to get out of the house without feeling rude (though I wish now I had. I figured I'd get a run in when I got home but we ended up raking leaves all afternoon.)

Today I will walk the hills at lunch, and tonight I have my 2nd Pilates class.

Tomorrow I ride, Wednesday I will run. My plan is Wed. 6, thur. 3, Friday 4 and Saturday off. Sunday I think we are mountain biking again so I may have to adjust that plan but for now it will work.

I walked a very slow half-mile in socks on the treadmill yesterday. I ran Friday and, despite my best efforts to land on the midfoot and keep my feet and lower legs relaxed, I ended up with shin splints. The treadmill walking was an attempt to ingrain in my head what my feet are supposed to be doing when my form is right.

Grrrrr

DH says that I'm impatient. Persistant, but impatient. (He's right, of course.) I so badly want to get my form figured out so that I can start building mileage and speed.

I won't run again until Wednesday. Bike commute today, and night mountain biking tomorrow

Re-started my C25k program today and I'm happy to report that I am blister free! It took awhile for those things to heal... Anyway, it felt great to get out there in 55 F, 20 mph winds, and a light mist weather.

One thing I noticed is that during the walk sections, the outsides of my ankles feel really sore, but it eases up during the run sections. Anyone have any ideas?

I ran at 5 AM and it was serene. It was 35 degrees out and I didn't see one car for the entire 3 miles. It was even starting to get a little light because of the change in time; well that and the full moon.

I felt much faster today and nothing hurt. My Garmin Forerunner is kaput. DH is giving me his 305. But I know I was faster today.

I took advantage of the time change Sunday AM and went for an early run. Hoping to keep the momentum going. Now, instead of getting up at 5:45 AM, get up at 4:45 AM every morning so I can run . . . .

That's the plan anyways.

Started week 1/17 of my half marathon training today. Nice to have light at 6 am! 2 slow and easy miles today... 3 later this week, and 5 this weekend. Nice to be running again after a long break!

A regular half-hour run in the neighborhood today, half on the roads and the other half on grass etc. in the park. Now it's time to work on some school stuff...

To really work on the form, I'm not convinced that the treadmill is a great way to go--I feel like it can throw things off b/c it's the ground moving under your feet. This sounds awful, but I would suggest finding a gravel path or similar and walking barefoot on it--it helps sort out your form because if you aren't doing it right it's uncomfortable! Not that walking/running on gravel is entirely comfortable even with good form, but it should be tolerable. I still use this on my runs sometimes--today, for example, there were a couple of areas of gravel on my route and I ran over it on purpose (in VFFs) to check myself.
