Whoa Big Fella

A small concern has entered the fray of my training. Basically itís been there for a week or so. The right shin is aggravated.

Last night I was headed out for my speed work. The plan is to run a steady easy pace for about 15 minutes to warm up and get loose. There was the stiffness in my right leg that I felt on runs previously. However this time the small ache and the stiffness didnít go away. It became readily apparent that the speed work wasnít in the cards.

For the moment I need to determine what to do with the issue. A number of things are on the table. One is to stop running and do some biking for a few days. Another is to take my step back week early and just reduce my miles this week. There is also trying a combination of things and that is my plan to deal with it.
