(am 2.8M @ 23:58 (8:36), pm 2.8M @ 21:14 (7:38). Dropped the car off at the dealership for some maintenance work and ran back to the office. Had to wait until 10:30am for it to warm up some, phew, 55F and a stiff WNW headwind at 15 mph, tough run! Will run back this late afternoon to pick it up. This time it will be with the wind!

Run
  • 48m 28s

Wasn't sure what to expect with my lower back issue but whenever I stand it is ok. Did some light strectching before starting and then ran easy at the start. It was 'only' 60F with a 10mph NW wind! Thankfully I started out running with the wind for 2.1 miles and after 2 miles the HR hit Z2 & I could feel my hands starting to warm up too! Running into the breeze after 3.2 miles was perfect. Felt the left hammy getting tight after about 4 miles and had to be careful with that leg. Think I figured out what my lower back issue is being caused by. Stretching beforehand I didn't feel it, so this is massage material!

Funny thing, I noticed that I wrote "short run" earlier today, can't believe that 5+ miles is now a "SHORT" run!!! Last year (Dec 20th)this run took me an ~hour and required effort to keep the HR down in Z2.

PM full body stretching

Lower back is sore/stiff again today when sitting and bending over, not sure if it is due to sleeping weird or something else possible related to the HIM.  Was ok on Sat but started to stiffen up last night again when I was sitting, feels ok standing up.  Need to do the inversion table and some serious stretching today.

Planned on doing a short run later today...

Sport
  • Inversion Table
  • 06m

3 min session, then inverted situps, then other core exersices, repeat.

Worked the core today during lunch.  Hung on the inversion table and it helped my lower back/right hip tremendously.

Lower back / right hip is very sore today, must have slept weird last night. Fatigue level feels normal today, wokeup naturally with only 7.5 hrs sleep.  Ready to rock!  Hmmm found a 5k/10k Turkey trot on T-day only 4 miles from my house and only cost $5 or $20 is you want the T-shirt...
