Post half recovery.

I took off from exercise Monday except for using the foam roller and the stick on my calve and hamstring muscles. I bought a "stick" on Saturday when I was picking up my race packet and I have been using it four or five times a day, I like it better than the foam roller and I can take it to work with me which is a plus. Tuesday I resumed walking at lunch time with a one mile walk and I did the same today. Tonight after visiting my mother I mowed the back lawn. My calf muscle feel good, I will continue walking and hope to run a little in the Parkway this weekend.


  1. Many congratulations on completing the LV Half! Great job! I have never run that far in my life! What's next?

  2. I am going to take a week or so off so my injury can heal and then run for fitness, maybe three times/week. I think two 5k's during the week and maybe the six mile loop in the Parkway on Sunday morning after church, that way I can keep a good base so I am ready for some 5k races. I will continue with the yoga,tai chi and other exercises on non run days and I hope to run the Lehigh Valley Half again next year because it keeps me training over the winter. I also want to do a triathlon and a full marathon sometime in the future.
