So here’s the update on this past weekend. As you all know I attempted to run 10 miles this weekend with the Landrunners. We ran a very ‘hilly’ course out at Mitch Park. Each lap around the park was 5 miles through winding paths, trees and steep hills. The weather was a little warmer this week, but still in the 30 degree range when we began at 7am.
Unfortunately my upper right thigh has been bothering me the last few weeks, but usually not until I arrive at mile 6 or so. This week it began to hurt around mile 3 and continued to get worse. Around mile 8, I decided to walk the rest of the way in order to avoid further damage to my legs. It was kind of awful because my body wanted to keep going, but my leg was telling me ‘no.’ I’m feeling much better today, but decided that I will be doing some strengthening and stretching exercises this week to prepare me for next weekends run.
This weeks exercises include cycling, elliptical, and some quadricep stretches.
