I woke up this morning with tight muscles (but not sore) and my stomach is finally feeling better. It has been two days since the marathon relay and as hoped, the snow held off for the relay! Today, it is snowing and I couldn't be happier. My legs were tight so I did a slow four miles on the treadmill this morning. I'm not good with rest, that is for sure. Well...that or I'm avoiding studying for my next state exam (it isn't until April).
There were a few reasons I wanted to run this morning.
- I'm not good at taking time off.
- I didn't stretch after the relay, so my muscles were tighter than usual yesterday and this morning.
- I needed to get moving to see if my stomach could handle it.
- And, I go to physical therapy tonight and the last thing I wanted was for my legs to be extremely tight.
This Week's Plan:
Monday: rest (done)
Tuesday: 4 miles easy (done)
Thursday: 5 miles*
Saturday: 6 miles*
*Dependent on what the PT says.
