I decided to not race the Cowtown Half Marathon and make it an easy training run (to give my shin a rest). The goal was to finish without making matters worse. Looks like it was a success, the shin feels fine and I still averaged 8:42 with a 7:30 for the last mile or so.</b>

decided on last thursday that it was time for some downtime as i've noticed a little ache in my right achilless - having been thru achilles issues in the past i've learned to take care of it early. cut friday run short, and skipped sat sun.<br><br>
just squeaked over 40 for last week.<br><br>
havent run yet this week, but will probably get out for some easy miles today. wont hit 40 this week, but should be back near normal next week.<br><br>
just 20 this week - only ran fri/sat/sun.<br><br>
should be back to normal next week - aiming to get up to 60ish
