After taking a planned week off (week 15) for the holiday, I’m back at it! A 3.6-mile short run yesterday afternoon with my running buddy. It felt good to be back out there. I had a little IT band pain, but no numbness or cramps thanks to good stretching beforehand. I had to use Strava on my phone to track the run because I left my Garmin home by accident.
7.11 miles in the bank! My longest run since starting in August. My poor watch froze at the end from the cold weather but we got it done. My running buddy is the real MVP for running those 7 while pushing a stroller up several hills! I stretched a ton and used my rolling pin beforehand (rather than after the run) and again no pain or numbness. That’s the key it seems!
