1st day back doing speed since Chicago. I was a little nervous and still took it easy by running my tempo pace, but I felt good!!!
Gotta love sweaty post-run pics! (It’s unseasonable warm here in TN.)
4 mile warmup
6 x 400m (400 recovery jog)
1 mile cool down
After such a grueling workout (I kid), Christi Beth needed a nap in Michael’s trunk.
To celebrate Dave’s MCM and the upcoming Monumental and NYCM…we went to breakfast afterwards. How awesome is this group?!! #mytribe
What is ASTYM?
Astym® treatment is a therapy that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym® treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail. One of the main reasons Astym® treatment is so much more effective than other treatments is that it was scientifically developed to resolve the underlying cause of soft tissue problems, rather than just trying to temporarily relieve symptoms. It is one of the most researched and effective therapy treatments available. Astym® treatment is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions.
Here are the tools…
And,work on my knee…
It hurts a little, but it also feels really good. ASTYM leaves some bruising, but nothing too crazy. Leah is really helping me to recover quickly and after 3 treatments, I can already tell a big difference.
Here’s a short YouTube video tutorial about ASTYM…
Jason’s out of town so I picked up some take-out dinner…for one. Apparently, I ordered so much food that they thought it was for two :/ Runger is real.
And, on a super cheesy note…I really appreciate you for taking the time to read my blog. It means the world to me!
Have you ever had to go to PT for a running related injury? What for? How did you treat it?
How long after a marathon do you start speed work again?
Do you cook dinner when it’s just for one? (Obviously I don’t)
