Squat.


This picture is only mildly relevant, but it made me laugh!

This morning I woke up with my left thigh hurting…a TON! I did my strength training yesterday, and incorporated some squat jumps (something I like to avoid, cause you know…they hurt….and work!), and oddly only my left leg is sore? Probably something to do with it being my shorter leg blah blah blah.

I did not use my incredibly sore leg as an excuse to not run this morning, not gonna lie, the thought did cross my mind.

I mixed it up this morning and ran my “loop” in the opposite direction.
Time: 28 Minutes
Pace: 14 min/mil
Distance: 2 miles
Weather: 33 degrees and FOGGY!

My shins felt pretty good! They were a bit sore yesterday (a non run day–maybe those squat jumps?) so I was nervous that they were going to be hurting, which then sent me into a tizzy about never being healed and never running again (this all occured at 4:15am–I eventually fell asleep and go over it!).

I made sure to stretch really well, and iced my shin directly after my run. I’ll probably ice them again this afternoon.

    Good job on still running! When you are sore from a strength workout…moving the next day is the BEST thing for your body!! You are awesome!!

    I am glad your skins didn’t hurt too bad. Definitely ice…ice is a girl’s best friend…not diamonds! haha!
