I didn’t sleep a bit last night. I had no particular reason not to. I wasn’t tired, didn’t run or work out, nothing worrisome on my mind..just wide-eyed until 4am ish which was time to get up! HA!
I was busy at work and the day went fast. On my 40 minute drive home…I was really trying to talk myself out of running. I was still so very sore from kettlebells that it was even more hard to walk today. I think it’s called delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Soreness becomes worse days later.
I will definitely be putting kettlebells back into my routine but maybe a little smarter! 🙂
I fed the dogs and fed myself a tuna sandwich. I put on running gear and drove 1 mile up the road to the MKT trail. I planned on 3 or 4 miles since I was so sore. When I first started running, my lower muscles..butt, legs were killing me. At first I thought I’d have to stop. I kept running…slowly for the first mile and the soreness worked out.
I ran 6.2 miles and I felt like I was floating for the last mile. Yep, that sweet spot hit at mile 5! 🙂 I ran a PR for a 10k. I burned ~800 calories and felt great.
Sometimes, it’s those runs that you can hardly make yourself start, turn out to be the best ones.
Hey…I got my first Stridebox today from http://www.stridebox.com and I felt like a kid at Christmas.
I got energy drinks, gels, protein bars, other things but the best thing was the “Hi Cool” sleeves.
