Hey Bro, Whatcha Thinking About?
So what is going on since my last super exciting post? I've done a couple easy runs based around a time rather than a distance, slowly working my way back to being..
My right leg is perfect, much like this:
My left leg.. the problem leg.. is more like this:
It feels much more crampy and strained feeling throughout the day. Mostly in my calf. I'd say maybe at 60-70%. Running feels better at least than walking. I'll keep my pace fun until this clears up. Not having timed pressure makes it easier to deal with if I end up feeling actual pain while running. I restarted my weight routine I cooled off of the last 10 days, and will be restarting the exercises I was doing at physical therapy during my lunch breaks as well.
I'm still trying to get a handle on eating like mortal, and fail miserably every day.. eventually feeling like this:
I posted this next part on twitter the other day, but as more of your runs may happen in the dark, PLEASE invest in some reflective gear, a vest, jacket, lights, something. Even though in Chicago we are pretty lucky to have the lakefront path and not get hit by a car, it would be nice to see someone running towards you from more than 40 feet away.
I just bought one of these: MAXSA Innovations Reflective Safety Vest - Model 20026
I'm pretty sure you'll see me and give me a side five right?
Not much else. Tomorrow, easy run for about 50 minutes.
Side thought: Should we start a morning motivation crew to make sure you get out for your run?
And now I hope your reaction to the end of this blog post is more like this:
And not this:
Happy Friday Eve!
