Another week…another weekly running recap!
Sunday: River Run half-marathon (#11…recap coming soon)
Thursday: 25 minute run
Friday: 20 minute incline walk
Saturday: 5 mile run
I needed a few rest days for recovery from the half-marathon, and I don’t beat myself up over taking those days off. I always have that “pleasant” sore feeling for a few days. Nothing really hurts, but the muscles are sore. I think this happens when I have done a lot of treadmill running versus running on the road (or it is just another confirmation that I am getting old!!). Anyways, after a few days off, it actually feels good to run again.
I finally bought a foam roller (waiting for it to arrive)! I have had issues with my IT band for a few years now, and while I have read that foam rolling is beneficial, I thought it wasn’t necessary. Well, I can’t ignore it any more. Now I need to learn how to use it properly! Runners- any suggestions? Are there any videos or books that you recommend?
