So it turns out the state park was closed for a deer hunt, and we didn’t have as much time as we hoped anyway, so Traci and I settled for a 4-miler yesterday.
The good news: Her knee wasn’t bothering her much. But now she feels like she’s got shin splints and her hip was hurting. So maybe this is a good time for us to cut back on running together and start swimming once in a while.
We’ll probably still aim to do one of those 10-mile run/walk patterns every week — they’ve just really grown on us. And we’ll probably do some trails, since those are so much easier on Traci’s joints. And I’ve got to start psyching Colleen up for the Runner’s World Holiday Run Streak, starting with the Galloping Gobbler.
Hmm…. so maybe we won’t be cutting back as much as we thought. Definitely want to add some swimming, though. 🙂
