When I woke up today I was still very sore from working out but I had planned a 4 mile run today. That is a half mile farther than my usual run because of the Hot 100 goal of increasing my running distance. I was skeptical I would be able to do the entire thing. I put on my running shoes and headed for the door. When I got outside I realized it was really really cold today, an icy cold morning. So I put on a long sleeve shirt and my new hat and started out. I started with a fast paced walk hoping the endorphins would kick in before I finished my 5 minute warm up, no such luck my legs still hurt. I decided to suck it up and start out on the full 4 miles. It was actually an amazing transformation... after only a couple minutes the pain in my legs was gone... Thank You Endorphins!
I finished the entire four miles with a 5 minute walking warm-up and 5 minute walking cool down. To be honest the last mile was a really slow run and if any elderly people with walkers had been out for an early morning stroll they probably would have passed me. I am still glad I finished the entire thing and my legs actually feel better tonight. I still can't lift my arms above my head but I'm ok with that.
