I figured since I hadn't run for almost 2 weeks due to an injury I would reward myself by doing my long run at a really beautiful place that I enjoy, but that is also a bit out of the way. Sunday morning I woke up early and drove to Burke Lake. I got there a little bit before 6am and parked right beside the bathrooms. This park is great because it's a 4.5 mile loop around a lovely lake and they have bathrooms too!
I felt pretty good running on the trail and finished my first loop then stopped for a Power Gel and some water. I completed another loop then ran a half mile out and back to complete my 10 mile run that I was sceduled for. My shins felt fine and are still feeling good today. I definitely think that the spin classes kept me in good shape during my time off from running! The hills on the trail weren't bad at all. I am glad to be back running!!
