My Glutes hurt. Well, let's be honest here - my butt hurts
I had my long run today - I felt like an Elephant pounding the pavement. Legs were so unbelievably heavy, I questioned my sanity a few times. While it was not a horrific run, by any stretch.. Afterall, I was injury free - I didn't sweat TOO much and I did enjoy the scenery.
However, I am now sitting on my the most sore spot of my body. For the first time, I iced my glutes. That's an ice opener and a "GOOD MORNING, VEGAS" moment!
I am going to take this as a CUE to strengthen my glutes. Afterall - a fellow runner called me a "Core Addict". She said at any time she can count on me working out my Core. Well, part of that is true. Since I did have my hip injury in March and I NEVER want repeat that again - I am fanatical about keeping my hips and abs lined up.
During this AM's run - I literally felt my glutes (aka "butt") was dragging on the pavement. That's no fun!
They call the glutes the "missing core" - well, time for me to go find them
Maybe after all this time, I can have that perky little butt that so many other runners have!
