As any runner will tell you, some days you think about your run during it and some days your mind wanders to other thoughts, ideas, etc. I ran a good clip during my 5 mile run today. It took me 37 minutes so the pace equated out to about 7:24/mile. I can't ask for anything more right now. Today, I spent most of my run thinking about 2 topics. Both of which are interesting for different reasons.
First, I thought a great deal and planned my visit to my daughter's Girl Scout Troop this afternoon. My wife, Maura, and our friend, Jen, are the troop leaders and asked me to come in with her husband and do a little presentation on Staying Fit, for a badge they are earning. I, the PE teacher, and Mike, the Wyckoff PD Sergeant, are like Hanz and Franz I guess. I will let you know how it goes. Mike, myself, and 8 4th grade girls in a gym working on some fitness. We will see!
Second, my left hamstring is being stupid. I cannot say it's pulled, strained, hurt, whatever. I don't know any other way to explain it other than that it feels locked, and unable to move freely. I don't feel like it is hindering me, but it is annoying. If I walk and lift my leg, or run a basic run, or go top speed in a sprint, all of them feel the same. None is worse than the other.
Tonight, I think I might ice it and take some Advil. I do not think this will get worse, but I want to be proactive about it feeling better.
