Commentary: Thursday’s run felt pretty darn good! Getting my heart rate up and pushing myself a little more wasn’t miserable, which I feel is a good sign considering how sluggish I’ve been lately. But man oh man was I sore from my strength workout! It had been eight months since I last did a deadlift, so my lower back was feeling it. My upper back was also sore from lat pullovers. I considered grabbing my snorkel so I could hop in the tub and get my whole back in Epsom soak, but instead, I watched a movie and went to bed.
Originally, the plan was to do a run and strength workout first thing this morning. Since I woke up still feeling quite sore I did an easy run — and yoga! It felt soooooo good to get back on the mat. My goal is to do yoga on my days off and Monday morning (rest day!), at least until my weekends start to get busy when the weather warms up. Then my goal is twice a week. Maybe once a week. We’ll see.
Endlessly seeking adventure.
