I’m trying something new today, since I’m not at all fashionable and I don’t always have a fashion post each week today I thought I’d do a fitness post. It’s been on my mind this morning because I went for a run today, but ended up walking. Why? you ask? Well, that would be because on tuesday when I went jogging last I didn’t stretch well enough, if at all. I kind of halfheartedly stretch before I run, which isn’t good!! I just either forget and so I do it after starting out or I just think it won’t hurt to stretch a little.
Tuesday I think I remembered to stretch after I started out and I didn’t do a very good job. I was also running with just the dog that morning because it was SO windy that I left Tini at a friends house. I thought it would be easier to run without the stroller with the dog….. boy was I WRONG!!! He kept running across my path or stopping to pee for WAY too long! UGH!! It was just a frustrating run! Then my ankles started hurting as I was running and by the end my knee was not feeling so good either. I usually do 2 laps or a little more, but I only did about 1 and a half on Tuesday. I just wasn’t with it that morning!
Now fast forward to today and I’m in PAIN!!! The sides of my calves HURT when I run, jog or walk. It’s not shin splints, I’ve had those before and this is nothing like that. It’s all on the side, not in the back. Maybe I just pushed myself to hard and it’s going to take time to get back into a good groove? I really don’t know!!
Does anyone know what I can do to help feel better? Also, what stretches do you recommend before running? I do lunges and those other leg stretch things where you bend over. I pull up my legs at the knee. I think that’s all..
Anyway I would love your suggestions and advice! It’s very much appreciated! Also, today I wanted to share another song with you that I’m really enjoying as a workout song:ARVE Error: need id and provider
