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.
