Monday - East Providence, RI - 6.3 milesAfter a week of rest to let my left shin/ankle issue heal up, I decided to attempt a run today. I started at the Ten Mile River bikepath and did a mix of trail and sidewalk that looped me around through the Seekonk Meadows trails as well. It felt great being back out there, though I misjudged the temp and overdressed. Unfortunately by mile three the shin pain was noticeable and it was really bothering me for the last mile. So the issue isn't any better and in fact this run probably made it worst.
Tuesday - 0 milesI was hobbling around this morning and it hurt to put too much pressure on my left foot. The whole thing has got me depressed. I suppose I'll need to schedule a doctor's visit.
Wednesday - 0 milesAb Ripper X (15 minutes)
From the depths of hell rises the Ripper! It's been many months since I attempted this short P90X core workout and it was shameful. I was flopping around like a trout and could barely make it through any of the exercises. But with my janky feet I've no choice but to wrangle this beast once again.
Thursday - 0 miles135 push-ups (standard/wide) 15/20/20/20/25/20/15
The soreness! Yes the core is a field of DOMS. Attempting to do push-ups today was sort of sad but I ground 'em out. Ankle/shin isn't feeling too bad today but I know it's just a ruse to lure me into complacency. Nice try!
