Week's end run.

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Not that long ago I was routinely jogging. This week I worked my self hard with all of the ZWOW training. And I gotta tell ya, my legs were sore as all get out by the time I was done with the week. So for some reason I thought that I should pick up jogging again right where I left off. Did I mention my legs hurt?
So I did a run tonight, in the cold. In the real cold. I thought I'd be able to keep up my old pace. I thought wrong. Came close though, so can't complain too much. I did 6 out of 7 rounds of my interval walk/jog training.
My legs hurt by the way. But I feel good for having done it.
Think I need to have my head looked at : )

    Actually, it sounds to me like you did the right thing - I like to jog when it's cold and sometimes it even helps the pain! By the way, I've discovered a 'magic cream' that seems to help a lot - it's not cheap but it's well worth the price and it is truly amazing. It's called Topricin - I get it at Sprouts because most stores don't carry it. It has helped my chronic feet, back and neck pain and that is truly a miracle because I haven't been out of pain for 20 yrs!! Yesterday I really over-did it on a stewardship project and was amazed that my back didn't hurt - the only possible explanation was that I used the 'magic cream' before I went out there. I put it on before I went to sleep last night and again this morning - even though I anticipated I would be half-crippled after the project, which involved bending over to plant cactus for 3 hours straight, I'm feeling fine. Anyway, I thought I'd mention it because it might help you with your aches - the main active ingredient is arnica, which is used as a topical anti-inflammatory that absorbs through your skin and reduces or prevents bruising, swelling and promotes healing.

Either way, hope you're feeling better now!!
