That’s more like it.

After a couple of days away from running, I returned on Sunday morning with a 5 mile run. Rest week was over, and I had been exercising the muscles around my shins to cut down on the tightness and to stave off the onset of shin splints. I was a little nervous, but I had a geat run. 4.85 miles in 54 minutes. Nice and steady. No back pain, no shin tightness. Only IT band stiffness in the fifth mile, the result of neglecting my IT strecthes while obsessing on my shins. It is odd, but by mile 5, I always get left knee stiffness. I go to 6 miles next Sunday, so we’ll see how that goes.

I felt great and was glad to be back in the saddle.
