Finally, a Good Long Run!
I did a great 15 mile run today at the Wasilla Sports Complex. For a change, my legs didn't hurt, everything felt great. We had an injury prevention clinic tonight with Team In Training and I learned quite a bit about stretching. I found out some things that I didn't know and see where I could be stretching more efficiently. I was surprised to find that the one muscle that gives me the most trouble, the inside of my lower legs, doesn't have a known stretch routine. No wonder I was having trouble with that spot, I was not stretching those muscles at all. The physical therapist suggested simply massaging that muscle. I did give it some time with the ice pack after my run today too and that really seemed to help.
