A bit of excitement at the school today, as a bear was allegedly spotted on school grounds. I was asked to help keep an eye on things outside for a bit but then had to attend a staff meeting. While in said meeting, I missed the announcement of where XC practice was going to be held because of the bear. So, I ran to a couple of usual practice spots to no avail, but the mileage in doing so was adequate for my own needs.
I've developed a case of shin splints over the past few days. Big shocker there. I always get them after a lay off from running so not a big concern. If past history repeats itself, which I anticipate it will, they'll be gone in 2-4 weeks. Might have to take it easy here and there as a result, but that's fine. No need to rush anything, as no big races are on the horizon for a while.
Ran 3.7 miles @ 8:41/mile pace.
