-I enjoy cycling but i was starting to get bored of it after 8 days
-I was beginning to envy the people who could get out and run
-I missed the way I could clear my head during a run
I've been able to run two times this week and both times felt great (a little tight at the beginning but found my stride and really enjoyed every step). I need to really embrace cross training days and days off. I had been running as many days as possible recently since the mornings had been perfect weather.
I'm back to running and hopefully I'll be smarter about it to prevent any injury flare ups in the near future. I'm using the stick, foam roller, stretching, ice, and heat to help my muscles stay nice and limber.
