Run Day 33 – Got My Legs Back

I spent Monday morning cross-training and doing a ton of lunges.  The program felt great and I was feeling good after.  The next three days were brutal.  I even did a slow jog yesterday just to keep my legs moving because I couldn’t get a full stride based on my hamstrings being stiff.

Things changed this morning when I threw on the Under Armour and ventured outside.  It was chilly, but I could feel the giddy-up was back in my legs.  I started out around a 9:15 pace for the first two miles and picked it up in the last three to finish with a 9:04 pace.  I was happy as my legs felt great and I was able to shake off a couple of bad runs this week.

I’ll keep doing lunges, but maybe I won’t do 100 in one set again.  Like everything even lunges need to have some moderation to them.

Decide to dominate!
