Today, I ran the Hot Chocolate 15K for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If there’s one think I like more than running; it’s running for a charity that helps people.
Today’s run comes after four days of painful shin splints on my right leg. Instead of giving it my all and trying for a personal best, I decided to run at a leisurely pace with my dad who also has been dealing with a injury. All in all, we didn’t do too badly, finishing at 1:47:27 or at an average pace of 11:32. Frankly, better than I though either of us would be able to do.
Tonight, my leg is still sore but not worse than what is was before the race. Tomorrow, I’ll work on strength training and foam rolling. No running for the rest of the week as I tend to my injury. Two more 5Ks towards the end of the week, so time will tell as to how much effort I put towards them.
