Wow. I made a pact after Steelhead to start incorporating some core work etc. I have been a major slacker when it comes to anything but swim, bike, run. Well tonight after my 6 mile easy run with JT downtown and some dinner I headed to the basement and popped in my Winsor Pilates Ab sculpting DVD. Man 15 minutes never hurt so good. I thought my core was getting stronger from using a stability ball for my desk chair at work but apparently there is still a lot of room for improvement.
My next mission, flexibility. Not only did the workout kill my abs, my freaking legs were so tight from tonights easy run I could barely keep the correct positions. Freaking Mari Winsor. So next match with the Winsor Pilates I need to incorporate a 5-10 minute stretch session first, perhaps I will start doing the Runner's World reccomended yoga routine for runners again. I was doing so well with the stretching right after Boston. What happened? Laziness that's what!
