It started out rough, slow, and sluggish, but I pushed through and just enjoyed the beautiful sunshine-y morning. Around mile 3 my knee started to hurt. I knew this would be my longest run in a while and I didn't want to risk another ITB injury, so I stopped and stretched my IT band and legs. After that I felt great! Miles 4, 5 and 6 ticked by and I was feeling great! Then around mile 7, my legs started to tighten and tire. I only had a few more miles to go and decided to throw in some short walk breaks (about 1 minute every 5-10 minutes). Finally I made I saw my house and sprinted the last bit home. My legs weren't happy with me, but post-run foam rolling helped a ton! I'm really happy with myself that I got it done :)
And of course, today is *HALLOWEEN!!!* Tonight will be spent studying for my midterm on Wednesday, but the girls I work with and I did dress up at the office today. Can you guess what we are?
You can't really tell, but I'm even wearing my old retainer!!!I'll give you a hint:
