Tuesday before last I was doing a 6 mile run. In my last mile, I turned into my neighborhood, hit a depression and my hamstring did a slight pull. I ran my Half (last Sunday) under the threshold of pain and nailed a PR for the race. (Surprised me as I did the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct 22)

Came home and went to a Dr of Sports Massage recommended by my Coach, got it worked out, doing PT, and will run this weekend! BAM! The thing about it, I found out my quads were tight as well as my left hip flexor. This amplifies the fact that I need to continue my static and dynamic stretches before and after my runs. I need to focus on these areas during my off running days. There's the importance of core/stretch workouts, and strength training!

I used to just do runs 3 times a week, nothing else, and always run into injuries. During 2017, I trained for my Marathon and embraced the training program. Run Drills, Strength Training, & Stretch Workouts/Yoga kept me injury free. This freak accident helped me in several ways. Had to pass it on!

Hey Lu!

I'm totally wired to Garmin for my Triathlon recording.

I'm also totally into sharing with other so I like your Nike feature. Great for accountability and simply sharing the experience!
