Workout results 8/22 - 5 days to go!

Saturday, August 23, 2008

I was so happy today because it was my first time to run since I hurt my leg last week!! I started off with a strong walk for 35 mins, then I ran for 10 mins non stop!! I know it is not what I was doing before, but considering this past week I could not even run, I was SO excited!!! It is a step in the right direction and I feel that I am getting stronger and recovering well.

I will try to do this again tomorrow and hopefully my leg will be strong and I can make it another 10 mins or more depending on how it feels. I stretched after and I am icing it as we speak. This was a hard experience to learn from...always STRETCH and never do deadlifts right after a hard run...LOL!! But difficult moments in life are there for a reason and as my friend Erin told me, everything happens for a reason so I have to look at this as a lesson I can learn from!
