Day one after the competition feels…SORE! I thought I knew what sore was but I was wrong!! I hurt from head to toe…it hurt to blink, to sneeze, to BREATHE!! But I’m not one to give into the soreness. I went to the gym to meet with my new friend…the roller. That thing is a GOD send! It fully epitomizes the “love-hate” relationship. It’s a “hurts so good” scenario. If using the roller is WRONG, I don’t WANNA be right, kinda feeling! I’m also still tired. I am post comp day 2 and I still want to sleep like I did right after. I’m trying to get sleep but who’s got time???
I took this baby out for a spin (or run). It’s nice to feel like a part of the running community by owning a GPS Watch. It is the Forerunner 10. Outside of the outstanding Garmin reputation, I also purchased it because the price was right! I didn’t have to take a personal loan to have it!!! It was “only” $130…SWEET!!
Easy to use
I’m still a novice to it, so I’ll keep you posted!!
Any way…back on the road… I went for an easy, SLOW, post competition run. And when I say slow, I MEAN slow! Like a pace of about 10:00-10:30. I was so sore and I figured I needed to move. I was bummed because I didn’t run as I normally do, about 1 min faster (trust me, my norm isn’t really breaking any records either). It felt good, regardless of how fast (or slow) I was going.
I was also interested to see how the Nike+ running app compared to the watch. They seemed to be within a few seconds of each other, so if I’m ever some where when I forget one, I know I will be on track with pace.
Tomorrow…it’s back at the gym for my regular routine. Next up for me??? TRIATHLON! Found one in April in Terra Verde, FL at Ft. DeSoto Park. I haven’t signed up yet but will keep you posted. My goal this calendar year is 3 races….keep your fingers crossed!
