Run:
– Treadmill: 1.0 mi run @ 8m57s pace. Ran 10 minutes total.

My goals for this are to continue to run 1-2 a week, making my way very slowing towards a 7-minute mile pace over the course of the rest of the year.

Side Split in 8 Minutes: Middle Split

Did not touch down. I am less sore than I was last week, but still sore from Friday. It’s all good. I really do need to come up with a daily stretch routine though.

I touched down very comfortably on both sides for front splits. I also noticed my knee was facing down. I’d like to start stretching lightly everyday, but I need a different routine.
