Today I ran 4 miles in 40:25. I felt like I finally hit my "groove" around mile 3.84 and wanted to knock out another couple of miles. But... I didn't. I was smart. Well... No... Not totally smart. I told Karl I was going to do 3 miles. Do you see a pattern here?
I stretched and foam rolled my IT band before running to loosen it up. I also rolled and stretched after the run. My left hip is still feeling pretty tight. Boo. I'll try stretching it periodically at work tomorrow.
At the end of my run, Missy Elliot's We Run This song came up in the playlist. At the end, a marching band takes over for the music. I think I need to download some marching band music to my playlist!!!
