I'm starting to really get back into the swing of running. I hit 2 miles for the first time since the 10k, though it wasn't quite easy. I increased the speed of my running interval, and despite doing the run on the treadmill, I was covered in sweat. I did use this run to test out my Oiselle singlet, and I also found out something. The Brooks shorts I've had for 5 years, including the trim, are pretty much as much of a match as they can be. You can't plan this.
I'm trying to work through something that feels like a knot in my low quad to make sure it doesn't tighten up and cause my ITB to tighten up as well. This weekend has been a lot of roam rolling, stretching, and Biofreeze. My ITB still feels slightly cranky, but maybe it was the speed and heat on Saturday. It felt fine on my shorter runs this past week. I'll still play around with pace while I continue to re-establish my running base.
