And then my hamstrings strangled me

7 years ago

I’ve been saying I was going to get up early and go running at the crack of dawn for days weeks months now, and today I finally did it. My plan was to slip downstairs into the basement and onto the treadmill without the dogs even noticing, however, once they realized I had on my running gear they were begging to come along. So had a change of plans and we went for a run outside. It actually was nice, we had the roads to ourselves for most of it.

And then 3 p.m. came around and I was ready for a nap! Somehow I made it through the rest of the afternoon and onto my Tuesday night hot vinyasa flow yoga class — where I thought my hamstrings were going to strangle me because they were so tired.

I’m really looking forward to crashing on my bed tonight. I’m hoping the chances of getting up and doing it again tomorrow are slimmed by the fact that I did not wash my sole pair of winter running tights.

Sidenote: Did you know that winter running tights have fleece on the insides? THEY DO! Ohmygosh, they are so wonderful!
