A new week and a fresh start (sort of). Today was my first outdoor run since iv started last week. As i wrote about eariler on in my blog, every outdoor day is going to be a slow recovery run, as i dont want to take a day off unless i have to. I thought about not timing my run today but i wanted to keep ‘the journey so far’ acurate so i decided to time it. 800m in 6mins. It felt so slow, i had to keep reminding myself to think of the big picture, and not to try and rush anything.
The foam rolling yesterday has helped the hip flexor a little bit, its still abit tender so i am having another day off squats and deadlifts, hopefully tomorrow i will be able to get back into it. Todays foam rolling went;
25 itb/hammy, 25 itb, 25 itb/quad, 25 quads, 25 quad/add, 25 add, 25 add/hammy, 25 hammy on each leg
Glute rolls with the ball, focusing on glute med(outside) and hip flexors.
I challange you all to get on the foam roller today and do it, its worth the pain!!
Run Long, Be Strong
