This Helped Me On My Runs!

Well this weeks runs were actually much better. Now that I am working from home one thing that has helped me so much is using resistance bands constantly while at work. I literally put on resistance bands up to my thigh area and just keep opening my legs outwards and back inwards. Just keep repeating. I leave it on even while I am walking through my house, going to the bathroom, getting food or just to stretch the legs. The two runs I did were much better than my previous runs that I had gone on.

On Wednesday april 8th I went on a 10km run at a 4.50min/km pace in my zoom fly 3 and it felt pretty good. A little sore by the end of it. On friday, I enjoyed a nice 6km run at a 5.12min/km pace in my clifton 6. It was probably the most pain free I have ever run since the injury started. Hoping that I can keep the momentum going. Will definitely keep you guys updated. Also on my run on Friday I actually saw a coyote near my trail. I stopped to look at him and thought of calling him peanut. Although it probably would have been smarter to keep running just in case he decided he did not just want to ignore me.
