It's been two days since my 5k and I am still walking like someone kicked the living daylights out of me! My legs, specifically outer thighs, are still horribly sore! I stretched before running...here and at the race. But I guess stretching isn't good enough when you've not run in almost a year!
That, my friends, is proof that I've not been as physically active as I need to be. I mean, I knew I wasn't exercising much. Heck, I've even blogged about it. Even if I had been more consistently walking (at a decent pace) the pain wouldn't be here. At least not as much as it is now. So, though I'm whining a bit about being in pain, I take it as a reminder that I need to keep moving! I won't let it stop me. If nothing else, it's another challenge that God's going to help me overcome!
The proof is in the pain, indeed!
