First, on my second 5 a.m. run last week I rolled out of bed, brushed my teeth, put a sports bra on under my jammies and went out the door. lol
At least it's pretty dark at 5 a.m.
Second, I have never foam rolled. I hear all these positive things, but the giant foam roller always looks a little overwhelming to me. I do ice, take ibuprofen, and stretch a lot, but no rolling. I am leaning toward buying the stick. It looks a little easier to use in different positions. If you have an opinion or suggestion about the foam roller verses the stick roller, please fire away! I'm open.
My odd sore spot on my calf was feeling great after my seven mile run Monday, but tonight on the treadmill I could feel the little tug again. I just ran three miles on the treadmill and then did my weight training. It isn't as sore as last week though.
I will probably have rest days Thursday and Friday because my hubby is off, that should clear it up, right!?
I have hit my 70 mile goal for the month, but resting for a longer stretch is always hard for me unless I am really ill or in danger pain. This is just odd soreness...
I noticed when I pulled in my driveway tonight those darn Japanese beetles ate all the leaves off my rose bush..sad looking
but BooBoo was waiting for me and he's so sweet, he just makes me smile. All my cats are indoor babies, expect BooBoo, who was a neighborhood stray, and when Hurricane Sandy blew through my hubby let him inside and now we can't let go of him.
Before we let BooBoo in my hubby would sneak him food. We had too many pets already, so I tried to insist we take in no more...but my hubby doesn't listen to me.
Often I would open my blinds in the a.m. to see this...

BooBoo loves to mess with my other cats.

He walks out the front door, goes around the house just to sit at the back door and cry, until I let him in.

We play this game all night, every night...LOL Who has who trained?!
Someone please tell me you rolled out of bed and ran in pj's at least once?!
If you have an opinion or suggestion about foam roller verses stick, please fire away! I'm open.
Do your pets think humans only exist to serve their needs too?
