Please send me healing thoughts for my house! It needs all the help it can get ;)
In running news, running has been virtually non-existent. I took the entire week after the Princess Half off from running, but I maintained my regular cross-training activities. Last week, I ran MAYBE 10 miles total for the week. I got busy (so much for spring break, right?) and for some reason, even after all of the rest, my right hamstring has been REALLY tight. It's tight when I wake up, tight when I walk, and tight when I run. It hasn't interfered with any running, so far, but I did have to stretch 3 times within the first 2 miles of my run on Friday. I have been icing it, rolling it, and massaging it and have found some release, but I am going to look into ART (per recommended by Cori) if it does not get any better. So far, rolling on a ball from the batting cages has been working best. I'm bruising all up and down the area, but things are slowly starting to release. I'm hoping to have run this morning, and if you follow me on Twitter, I'm sure there will be an update about whether or not I went out there today. Send me healing thoughts for my hammy too, please.
Also, my poor floors :(
Thanks for suffering through it! Love you guys :D
