Today we got out and ran our 5km... my quads have been very stiff for the past several days and I knew it was going to be tough, but we headed out about 10:15, into a light breeze but a very pleasant 8C.... overcast but bright just the same.
I was right. It was a slow slog today but I used 11/1 walk breaks and got it done so I am happy for that.
And I made sure to get in a few extra minutes of stretching out my quads after I went through the rest of my stretching routine. I learned how important stretching is and am always sorry if I don't take enough time with it... besides.. it just feels so good!
And The Captain is has learned the benefits of it too, but doesn't really enjoy it all that much.
He is always more interested in the protein smoothie that awaits him when he is finished!
