After two days off of running [Stairs don't count as 'running', right...?] I figured it was time to give it a go again.
Oh man, my right hamstring/glute/IT band was one big shooting pain. I started off relatively mellow and came this close to walking but managed to run through this. At the end I felt better than when I started but I did NOT feel good. I obviously need to get help so once I got to work I promptly scheduled a massage and an appointment with my PT.
On a humorous note, when I was about 20 minutes into my run the guy from the front desk at my gym comes up to me and wants to say something. I had my iPod in and it was cranked so I had to take the ear buds out to hear what he had to say. "Hey, I'm really sorry to ask but I think your treadmill isn't balanced or something and we just had a guy from another building call to complain about the noise... would you mind moving one to the left or right?"
I did notice the treadmill was not as solid feeling as I am used to and it kinda rocked when I landed on it but I had no idea it was making so much noise. I shut it down and moved left for my last ten minutes. Sorry everyone...
Core was still just as hard as Monday but I checked the box. Progress.
On the way home I had to run some errands and it was a blast to be able to do them on the bike.
