The Love Of Running

I love to run, it’s hard being a big guy getting back into running the highs and sometimes lows are amazing. When your feeling good your on top of the world.
The running community, the people in it are so cool. I was recently running on one of my training runs from my house in Bellevue Kentucky rounded a corner there was a massive group of people going on a training run from a local running store. It was a group training for the flying pig marathon in May.
I didn’t know any of these people in fact I had only been in the store once but tacked on to the group and ran along with them. Everyone in the group were so friendly and were happy to have me jog along. I wish I had done the entire run with the group but I had already been at it for some time before I got to the group.

Running Pain

So I ran my fastest 5K time on the weekend at the Cincinnati Cyclones Frozen 5K, gave myself a couple of days off before my next training run. Did my run last night I was supposed to run 4.5 miles (7.2 k’s) but had tremendous amount of pain on the inside of my knee.

So feeling a little dejected I started to think what the hell is going on. Then I worked it out, being rushed for time doing the dad and husband thing I skipped any form of warm up apart from some half-assed hamstring and quad stretch. Being a 37 year old, 280 lbs big rig I really should have stretched more because any high I was on from running a 30.33 5K was quickly gone when I failed to see out my training distance.

Pain Is Just Weakness Leaving The Body, I say. Somehow I think I have still got some weakness in there.
