Yes, you got that right...back to running! Also 7 full days of exercise this week (although Tuesday was just a power walk).
Boy, did the running feel good!.. so easy to get a great workout while looking at the sky, trees and everything outdoors. (ok, you get that on the bike too but not as carefree!). I feel like my cardio held steady....mostly I notice the running-specific muscles are a bit deconditioned.
On the other hand, I have all sorts of other muscles that are way bigger from all the other workouts I've been doing. In particular, the glutes, abs and hip adductor muscles are stronger What I think are called the "lattissimus dorsi" have made an appearance for the first time in my life...I assume it's from the swimming (?)
As for my calf pull area , it seems healed..but I'll take it easy on the running paces for another week or two while I build up the miles again.
Annoyingly, I still have a soreness in some deep muscle in my right upper leg.(might be the gracilius muscle?)..it's gotten better some but it's still there. Doesn't seem to be associated with the running directly...I don't particularly notice it when running or walking.
Thursday, I get to see a (running specialized) PT person this week (FINALLY) and I'm looking forward to what she has to say about that as well as my R/L imbalance and what (if anything) I should do about it.
