12:32 pm: 3 miles

Well the plan was to run 4, but I could feel my shin aching a bit more than the previous days so I decided to stop at 3 and walk/jog the last mile. My average pace was 7:15 per mile which was a lot faster than I wanted (probably why my shin freaked out). I got to keep focusing on bringing my pace down until I can safely run at a faster pace. It's honestly been one of the hardest challenges for me, but I've made some great improvements. Probably gonna go for a hike later since it was a low mileage day

4:24 pm: 7.25 mile hike

Decided to hike to the Y which is only 2.2 miles round trip, but at the Y I saw another trail and got curious and before I knew it I was at the top of Y mountain. Didn't plan on getting in that mileage, but I wasn't complain. Ended up hiking up 3,443 ft in 2 hour and 24 minutes which wasn't too bad (19:52 average mile). My legs are pretty tired from today's activities so there will be a lot of stretching and massaging tonight before bed
