Another busy week for me, but I’m fairly happy with my efforts! I only went for a mixed run/walk once, but I’ve been finding that my shins have started to hurt a bit during and afterwards. My friend Lucia (a.k.a. Twinny) mentioned Shin Splints to me yesterday so I’ve just researched it and I am certain I have the beginnings of shin splints. So I think I’m going to try and swap the running for another cardio exercise until I get new (i.e. the correct) trainers and have a soft surface to train on. (I got these tips from NHS Online.) I may have to join a gym after all, but at least if I’m paying for it that should make me keep it up more regularly?! Hmmm, will need to have a think about it. Until then, I think I might try and turn my stretching into proper yoga sessions. (I know there will be tonnes of tutorials on YouTube I can follow!) So the format of my Get Fit Log will probably change from now on.
Activity: Walked 2 miles
Activity: Ran/Walked for 11.5 minutes and walked 2.8 miles later on
Activity: Walked 2.6 miles
Activity: Walked 1.7 miles (not bad considering I was on a 12-hour shoot most of the day!)
Activity: Walked 2.5 miles
Activity: Walked 2.8 miles
I hope you’ve all had an active and happy week! :)
