My Aching Quads


Swimming has started up again. Apparently, 2+ months out of the pool have really hurt. I start out ok, but fade quickly, and by the end of the practice I'm quite slow. It doesn't help that we've already done a 3000m workout, though I suppose in the long run that will help quite a bit.

I ran on Sunday, for the first time in a while. I've been having problems with my right hamstring, and my last run hurt a fair bit, so I limited myself to 20 minutes. It wasn't too bad, but I forgot to stretch, and my quads have been sore ever since.

I'm trying to work out every day, and have probably been succeeding 5 or 6 times a week. Unfortunately, there has been very little endurance work. I miss it - endurance stuff is my favorite, but it's the most time consuming.

These days, though, I'm doing well to fit in what I can. Hopefully I'll be able to ramp back up to it as the summer rolls along.
