It has been an interesting week of working out. I lifted with the trainer on Monday and took a day off from running. On Tuesday I ran a 5K with a 9:44 average, but then my muscles tightened up. I ran my 5K yesterday with a 9:44 average. I am starting to feel less sore today and I ran the 5K with a 9:50 average. Interesting that the days I felt worse I actually ran quicker…maybe I was just pushing it to get done vs. enjoying it like I did this morning.
Obviously I am not stretching enough after I work out. Especially on Monday when I am lifting with the trainer. I always stretch before my runs and usually after, but it is clear usually needs to turn into every time.
Decide to dominate!
