2.28 miles - 18:25 I hit 2 miles in 16:17
Dick Hartzell Lower Body Flexibility Routine using bands ~12 minutes
-Run - This felt ok, my first longer run in months and I didn't feel like stopping once, I am thinking about getting some other shoes though because I have a few blisters now from places that were rubbing. Not a great time but I'm happy with it for now.
-Flexibility Routine - Ouch - the ankles/achilles/IT band stretches were the most painful and only shows that I haven't been doing as much as I should in regards to stretching
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
