I’ve recently got back into running, training with a neighbour, who is in the running club that I was in (apparently I’m a lapsed member, as I never actually resigned from the club).
So in the last couple of weeks we’ve gone from couch (I’ve not been running due to holidays and tendonitis, and he’s also been injured) to 6 miles, averaging 10 mins/mile.
So we’re pretty happy with that.
Last night however, after running my, legs were not happy. I’d been to one of my regular yoga classes at lunchtime, and the legs were just taking a pounding yesterday. That’s when I realised that all my physical activities are/have been leg based. Yoga, running, karate, rock climbing, snowboarding, skateboarding, ice skating, inline skating (and the few days surfing I managed to tick of my bucket list) are all predominately leg based (with the possible exception of yoga, although there’s a hell of a lot of leg work involved).
