I got to tell you that this was the best 5K I’ve ever had in my life and didn’t experience any pain in my shin nor sprained my ankle. I’m so pleased that I wasn’t sore at all and my timing was 56.32.
Back in 2008, when I took off running at the start line then experienced severe shin splits and ended up with a broken right ankle, my timing was 56.31. I have to say that this year is the best even though it was 1 second longer but I walked all the way pain free…that’s the goal. I plan to sign up for 2 more 5ks soon.
Thank you for your encouragement.
