Monday: Due to the guilt of no runs over the past weekend and the shin twinge, has led me to go for an easy run today. Also sore throat and some itchy red eyes.

Tuesday: Run 1: No shin issue.

Sunday: Long training run from 9:30pm-12:30pm. Two handhelds with 300 calories each of HEED. Full 70 oz. hydrapak of water. Salt stick start and after 1st and 2nd hour into the run. Experience blurry left eye staring mid run. Had it before during other late night long training runs.Think the eye is tired. Temporary.
