Some of the old running crew planned to meet up at the trail this evening to go for a walk. Colleen had just attempted to Boston Qualify at a marathon on Saturday (she improved her overall marathon time by 23 minutes! But she needed more to BQ so she was thrilled and disappointed all at the same time. But she is determined and I know will accomplish it at some point!
So instead of running this week she needed to dial it back and just walk some as she suffered serious cramps towards the end of the race (which knocked her out of the BQ running).
It was great to catch up again like old times.
My lower back once again started to hurt (feel really tight and strained) about halfway into the walk. This seems to keep happening and it is all because my legs remain so tight. Plus I think swimming is requiring more back and leg strength and all of this combined - I am even more tight.
So afterwards I foam rolled as best I could and then stretched for quite a while after that. Just need to keep at it to loosen these legs up!
