Is it real or is it memorex? Ok showing my age with that one. But that's what I was thinking during my run tonight. Stretches - 3 miles with a one minute walk after each mile - followed by more stretches. My time for the run was 1.5 minutes faster than Saturday's 3 miles but I took less walk breaks so that makes sense.
HOWEVER.... right at the start I felt twinges and aches. No pain just aches. Left leg between knee and hip in the front (that's a new one) and the outside of right foot and a little on the outside of the right hip (the opposite one from the current issues) It all went away after about half a mile. I just kept slowing down until it did.
My fear is knowing whether these are phantom or real. Are they something I should worry about? Last time I had aches that went away after running some it turned out to be a major problem. I know I'm hypersensitive right now to anything that doesn't feel right. Trying to balance between being a wimp and doing the right thing is a little unnerving.
For now I'm going to keep tracking the aches and twinges (real or not) and see what happens.
I do have to say that stretching after my workouts has brought very positive results.I can't put it in words except to say I can tell the difference. And 3 hours later I have no soreness, aches or twinges. I can get up and walk without wobbling.
Yeah, I know. I'm old. Deal with it :)
