Yesterday I was complaining (in the most positive voice I could muster) about my back. It still hurts and thus my IT bands hurt which makes my left ankle hurt. I know not to worry about the pain in my legs because if I can loosen my back up the pain will pretty much go away.
Today I ignored my back (though I did stop and stretch as needed) and I ignored my training plan. It was amazing. Yes my back is a tight ball of messy muscles but my legs feel much better after running 9 miles. I have happy legs again.
Thoughts have been dancing in my head...thoughts about VFF. Anyone else curious beyond belief about these? I may have to hit up Fleet Feet to satisfy my curiosity.
