With my neck/shoulder injury, I didn’t workout on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. I have been taking Naproxen Sodium every night and using the heating pad on it. And, it’s getting better everyday. At this point, I would say it’s 80% normal – and a lot better than it was on Monday and Tuesday where I wanted to shoot myself because of the constant pain.
Feeling better and it being a long time since I have done anything active. I elected to go for a run this morning before starting my workday from home. How did it go? Well, this is what I posted to my Facebook page when I got home:
I went outside at 8 AM today and worked up a big sweat- even if it was 12° F with a RealFeel® of 1° F when I hit the streets. How? Under Armour and running a 5K distance in 24:55. After a couple of miles, I was toasty warm. Thank you Under Armour!
For me, that’s a good pace. And, considering my recent issues with running, just going 3.1 miles without stopping is a big deal. Oh, and, yes, I did it in the freezing cold! Now, I just need to get my rear end into the gym tomorrow.
This is workout #13 for 2013 and it’s a great one.
