Last weekend during the slightly warmer weather I had been craving a run. Of course the day I finally get to run it looks like this outside...
The walk there was so painfully cold that I figured this "run" would be interesting.
I kept it on flat flat road around the gym.
The first few minutes were tough since I couldn't keep my mind off the thought of shooting pain in my leg. I kept anticipating for it to come.
Thankfully another fear took over my mind: FROSTBITE.
I was fricken COLD! My hands and toes were going numb. I looked down at my watch and I was only at 8 minutes. I did not think I could last another second. But then, I turned into the sun. My hands started to burn as feeling came back. I wish I could say the same for my feet.
Before I knew it, I was at my stopping point and pain free :-)
Woo hoo! I definitely felt tension in my calf and hardly consider myself home free, but this is a start.
I stayed at the gym to get some more of a workout in (bike, weights) and then went home to foam roll the muscles.
And ice while watching some quality programming
I love my housewives :-)
The plan is for another 20 minutes on Wednesday and 40 on the weekend. I would typically take things slower, however I don't have the luxury of time.
Here's hoping for another pain-free Wednesday!
