Not having class on Friday is always nice.....I get to sleep in, relax, have time to start homework, and most of all it's great for working out. When I began college it was my goal to never have Friday classes (unfortunately the methods class that's required for my Psychology Major won't let me achieve that goal).
Work Out: I got all ready to go to the Rec Center today and was planning to do another track run/walk like Wednesday. The track was almost empty and I was pumped to get going (with my iPod in hand this time). After stretching I walked a quick lap as a warm up. On lap 2 I started to run.....ran lap 3.....ran lap 4. My legs were starting to cramp up and I was getting a little worried. I even forgot to bring water which could have probably helped me out. As I began to walk lap 5 the pain in my legs became unbearable and I needed to stretch....pronto! I made my way to one of the mats and tried a reach stretch.....it hurt so bad I almost started to cry and knew that my body was telling me not to run anymore today. As I worked out the cramped muscles I decided biking would be a better workout. I hit the bike for 4.2 miles and my legs gave me a big thanks. Maybe next time my body will take running better.
