Running is Like a Box of Chocolates
Apparently I should have done intervals or a shortest distance while trying out a 189 cadence. I felt fine until yesterday evening, I started to feel... dun dun dun.. my left hamstring get tighter. I didn't think a lot of it. As a precaution, I moved my rest day to today (Wednesday) in hopes of getting ahead of it. I wake up today, and it is worse. Blah.
I was sat too much today I guess, because once I started walking for the CTA, I couldn't even do more than barely shuffle that leg like a zombie... Depressing.
I am kinda bummed that this happened when I wasn't even doing anything that ambitious, but at least I don't have to worry about missing any training days. I'm trying to stick with light stretching and foam rolling, and keeping from staying in a seated position helps loosen it up.
I have my doctor's appointment tomorrow for just a yearly check up, but I'll just toss him my complaints while they are nagging me.
Back on bench until I can at least walk normally! I really hope this is just a bad cramp or something. I really don't want to go back to PT already.
Hopefully tomorrow I can say, oh it was just a short thing and I'm feeling a lot better, but as this is basically my running journal, I had to put this down.
No worries on comments today! Crossing my fingers now for some break in the rain tomorrow for trick or treating!
