Intervals day today. My training plan called for 7x400m, and I hopped on the treadmill not knowing how it would work out– after all, I ran just last night, too. But it went pretty well for my first intervals workout of the plan, 3.64 miles total in 43:11. Next time I think I’ll try to push the fast parts a bit faster and keep from slowing down so much in the recovery intervals– I didn’t need to slow to a walk but it was pretty slow. The workout could probably be pushed up a tick in toughness.
Anyone out there have any suggestions on how to stretch out my lower back? All this running is aggravating my old back injury, and it’s sore again. I haven’t had any luck getting at it with a foam roller, either. Honestly, I’m probably due for a massage!
