Because of dance class I missed the team run, but I was going to be attending the foam roller and core clinic. I have a new best friend. I got a foam roller to help with myofacial release, or self massage of my muscles. Just in the few minutes of the clinic my IT band (side of my thigh) felt a lot better! Then I went to lunch with my mentor and three teammates. It is great to get know others that I am going to be running with!
Since I did not do my team run, I still needed to do my run for the day. So I went to the Firstenburg Community Center to do my run on the treadmill. It was a debate on whether I should do an outdoor run or a treadmill run, and I would soon find out why I chose the treadmill. When I got there on the door was a sign for a blood drive and there was an urgent need for blood (not a surprise with the situation in Haiti). So I did 5.5 miles on the treadmill. Oh man, it was hard....but I did it! Then I decided to go donate some blood.
