Whew. Yowza. Yup.
Might be Monday’s combination of hill repeats for my run and strength training, two things I’ve been slacking on, but I woke up Tuesday with some DOMS. I don’t get a lot of DOMS partially because of my level of fitness and also because I’m a creature of habit and I’m bad about shaking up my workout routines.
Throw in a very tough two a day workout for Tuesday that was actually three workouts and my legs are done-zo. I have a serious date with my foam roller and body buffer today.

My workout this morning was supposed to be an easy, slow 4 mile run. I clocked out at 3 miles. My legs felt heavy and runners trots were fighting me. Can’t win em’ all. I still feel good about the run regardless. And I did an excessive amount of foam rolling afterwards, so that was nice. After work I’m hoping to walk Griswold then spend some time with my body buffer further soothing my muscles.
You know what else is going to start happening? This-
|Drowning, Ironman, circleslashbaby.|
Yeah, my “IRONMAN” alarm set for 6am has been reduced down to only go off two days a week because the other two early mornings are now set to 5am for “Drowning”. Apparently to reap the benefits of the additional coaching I need to be in the water at 530am. I was contemplating setting my Ironman alarm back to 530 anyways, but now that two days a week I’ll be getting up at 5, I’m going to keep my other alarm right where it is. Honestly, as much as I’ll desperately miss my extra hour of sleep, I need to the extra swimming help more. And it’s only twice a week for 16 weeks, so I can deal, right? Right..?
