Pennsylvania wasn’t that cold… - Chi Running

Pennsylvania wasn’t that cold…

So I ran! After traveling most of the day on Friday, we got to the B&B and I decided I had to get out and jog or I would go crazy.

Besides, how could I go assist at a workshop the next day in good faith without having run in awhile? ;)

I ran this route in about 35 minutes. No surprise there, classic 10 min/mile pace as always. I have to break that somewhere, don’t you think?

I was feeling pretty good, but sitting on planes is the end of my flexibility. I get off the plane and my right piriformis is painfully sore and tight. I fell on it 6 months ago and it still bothers me. Between The Stick and my acupuncture clinic, I have got to get it to go away.

I felt good on the run. Wasn’t too cold and I was just trying to keep things centered, keep my energy centered and collected. Since it was getting to be sundown, I figured the ice would be a little slippery and I might end up on the ground so I just took it easy. I wanted to feel good later in the evening and of course the next day.

After the run I felt great, refreshed, energized, and very wet around the nose. Fun! My focuses were pretty simple: core engaged, high heels.
