Today I did my first test run in 2 months. I completed the first day of the Couch to 5K program.
Over lunch I had an appointment with my ART certified chiropractor. Last week he said to try spinning easy. This week he suggested going on a test run to see how my good 'ole injury feels.
While I am not 100% yet I would say I am about 60-70% improved. I still feel pain but it is not as intense & not as consistent. It is slowly getting better.
Week 1, Day 1 entails a 5 minute walk warmup, 60 second jog / 90 sec walk for 20 minutes & a 5 minute walk cool down. I wore my new Aspaeris compression shorts which I think helped....they definitely felt good when I put them on! I did feel some discomfort while jogging in my glute & hamstring but not terrible. In 30 minutes I covered 2 miles.
Afterwards I rolled on my TP Grid roller & then hooked up my Tenz unit. An hour after my run I am feeling pretty good!
