Well this was not the start to the new year I imagined!
Following yesterdays run I felt OK but was stiff mid run so decided to do some exercises on the foam roller.
Sadly during yesterday I had some pain and heat through my hip, ITB and knee – obviously whatever I had rolled had been very tight as I have aggravated it.
I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing as it is very tight and sore today but I have completed a few more smaller exercises this morning to stretch my legs. I have also had a cold shower to help circulate the blood in my legs.
All of this seems to be working, I simply need to ensure that I do not stay stationary for too long as I am sure my leg will seize up again.
I am not sure what effect this will have on my running so will have to see how I feel tomorrow before heading out for another run as planned.
I didn’t get a great nights sleep because of my legs as I could not get comfortable. I tried my best but I did watch the clock go round and even laid in bed listening to the fireworks (we were both tired and went to bed before midnight).
This morning has brought a sharp frost (the main photo is of the roof window in the guests bedroom), and it’s the first in a very long time. One can hope that the start of the year also means the kick start of the seasons and we may finally be getting some wintry conditions!
I hope you’ve all had a good new years eve and start to the new year.
