Today I decided to do a cross-training workout. When went to bed last night I was considering doing an easy 3 mile run in conjunction with a shorter cross workout, but I slept longer than I had wanted and woke up feeling pretty sore in my legs and back. Yesterday was a rest day, although I did do 30 minutes on the elliptical in the morning to loosen up my legs. That 22 miler on Saturday worked me over pretty good, and now I want to let my muscles recover.
So today I started out with another elliptical workout for 60 minutes. Then I got on the treadmill and walked at a moderate pace with the incline as high as it would go and holding 5 pound hand weights. I did that for 20 minutes. Before I started I used the foam roller on my hamstrings and IT bands for a few minutes, now I think I'll do it some more.
