You tell 'em LL Cool J
I kind of sort of mentioned it in a previous blog post, not wanting to jinx it, but I've been running again. After six months of problems, for some reason things started clicking. I'm not exactly sure if it was just because I needed a break, needed to do more hip, back, and ab exercises or what, but it seems as if that IT Band of mine has calmed down. I feel like I can officially say this now because I ran eight miles yesterday. And it was awesome. Small victories.
In honor of my running return, I thought I would share a few of my current favorite running jams. I have an absolutely absurd musical taste. My iPod can hop from Barry Manilow, the Lumineers, Bob Dylan, ABBA, Flogging Molly, Alice in Chains, and the not-so-occasional Broadway show tune.
4. Hey Ma--Cam'Ron
I certainly did not lie when I said I had some random taste. This past Friday night after dinner my family tried to stump me on a "name that tune" game. I was successful about an hour an a half until I became stumped on some eighties band called Vixen. I only suggest clicking on that link if you want to torture your ears.
I hope 2013 brings a great return to running and I'm not all excited over a short-term return. I have been working hard to make sure my hips/knees are strong in hopes to avoid my previous running woes. Here's to hoping for a good year!
