Saturday’s Workout Stats:
Route: through West Newton
Best Song: “More Money, More Problems” by P. Diddy
Success! Turns out the torture treatments in the tush region were just what the
shin splints lower-back pain ordered. It was decidedly UNuncomfortable (let’s see – two negatives make a positive – well, I wouldn’t say I was comfortable, per se) in terms of social awkwardness, but once the giant ball of pain muscle knot was sufficiently worked out, I was strong/confident/ready enough to hit the pavement on Saturday.
I will say I felt a little out of practice as far as the breathing, mental preparation and car-dodging went, but once I ran a few steps, it was just like riding a bike (or taking a run, as it were) and I think from here on it, I will be just fine.
Moving forward, I promise to:
• Stretch better
• Ice longer
• CROSSTRAIN (!)
• Be more diligent about rest
• Chill the heck out
