Yesterday was my rest day so I shot a little running survey video after work. I hope you like it!
Questions in the video that I would love for you to answer in your own video, blog post or comment:
1. What was your first ever race like?
2. What is your favorite race ever?
3. Pace group or no pace group and why?
4. What is your dream race and why?
5. Who is your favorite runner/who motivates you?
Oh yeah, and I would looooooooove to know if you ran the mile in school and what you thought about it!
I’d also love for you to give me calf advice for the millionth time.
Here’s what’s going on:
On Sunday my calves felt a little bit tight before I even started running so I foam rolled the heck out of them. That helped loosen them up a lot and my long run ended up going really well. My calves felt tight for the first mile or so but after that I totally forgot I even had calves!
When I got done with the run I felt good, went through my stretching routine and then ate some delicious food.
Yesterday morning I woke up and my calves felt tight.
As I’m writing this at 11:39pm they are SERIOUSLY tight. Like, I know I could not run right now even if I wanted to because even walking feels weird.
I’m hoping this is just a combination of long run + foam rolling but IDK!!!! I’ve never had my calves feel this tight after rolling them, but to be fair I don’t roll them very often. Maybe I should?
This pic is cracking me up. THAT FACE. It’s the same look I give when I’m about to start foam rolling.
Cute cats aside, do you ever get super sore after foam rolling your calves?
What did you think of running the mile in gym class?
