Evening Running and Stretching

I don't normally run in the evenings as that's my relaxation time, but I'd had such a different day yesterday ...


I was due to go to Body Tone in the morning, but a friend was in need of a shoulder ... and I'm always there for friends ... so I for-went my exercise class in the morning ... then in the afternoon my computer decided to have a hissy-fit when I installed Windows 10 and wouldn't save any of my work (how am I supposed to work if my computer won't save anything!?!?!?!), so I re-installed Windows 7 which seemed to take FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!

It was after the computer "fun and games" that I decided enough was enough and that I needed to get out of the house and go for a run.

I laced up my trainers and off I went (thankfully all cats were asleep so no surprises when I left the house for a change!!). I had already decided I was only going to run a 3 mile route, and I'm glad at that because after the first mile I had pains in my shins and calf muscles starting and my legs felt really heavy ... I don't think I could have stretched enough after Monday's 5.34 mile run.

I managed to run and walk the rest of the route but by the time I got home, I had really bad pains in my shins and calfs and found it painful to walk. I wonder if others have experienced this ...?? I managed to have a hot bath which seemed to ease the pain ...


I woke this morning and my legs felt like lead weights so I decided to do a Lower Body PiYo workout to give my legs the stretch they deserve ... and I have to admit that both shins and calfs are no longer aching ... oh the joy of a good stretch ... I just love the Down Dog stretch !!!

I think I'll take tomorrow off running and do another PiYo workout instead ...
