The past several Mondays, I have had trouble stretching before my workout. My muscles have been tight and resistant. I have had to be careful not to hurt them in the process of trying to stretch them.
I think that has been because I haven't found the time or made it a priority to get some exercise over the weekends. After yesterday's bike ride, my muscles were joyously cooperative this morning for the stretch.
Truth: I woke up SO EXCITED to get to run outside again. Though the snow is falling hard now, it was just a little spitting rain when I was out there. Just enough to make me feel like a badass, and we all know how much Karen loves that.
Still, I haven't run in a week or two because of the weather. Have done stairs and such, but not run. Which means it was a hard push, doing my usual 2.5 miles. My legs got heavy as lead, even though the rest of me was in happy celebration mode.
But that's just lost momentum. I know how to gain it back. :-)
