The alarm went off and I begrudgingly swung my feet over the side of the bed. As I stood up I was more aware of my legs than usual. They were a bit sore and as I walked over to the washroom it felt like they were filled with lead. “Eh, no problem.” The weird stretch in my Achilles did concern me some since I haven’t had a problem with that before. I met The Stick with about as much fervour as someone about to poke their own eyes out. It was painful, but necessary…at least that’s what I say to myself. After I walked around a bit my legs started to feel better. I did some quick yoga and then headed out for the day.
When I returned I put in a solid eight kilometers (five miles) and the legs were great. They didn’t cramp up or go super slow, I was still a little sore but I don’t think it effected my gait. I made this run a fartlek and had a lot of fun with it. I ended next to a field and did some bounding to top it all off. Take that, muscles.
Random edit: Do any of you with the Nike+ system know what to do when the iPod says “Replace sensor soon.” Just so I don’t sound really dense I mean do I need to go out and buy this thing again or is there a battery I need to replace? Thanks.
