-225 squats
-23 push/pull ups (ha)
-Registered for three more runs (even though I can’t run a bunch at the moment).

Ran the entire Bay Breeze 5k!!!
-Aggregated my hip flexor strain.
-Got 50% off ProCompression clover socks.

-Got Because I Appreciate you flowers.
-Gained 2 pounds (hopefully it’s muscle but I highly doubt it).

I have 1 pair of procompression socks for a month and already the elastic thread is coming out. THEY DON’T DESERVE YOU.

Comment by Nicole @ pink elephant on parade

Lol thanks Nicole. I haven’t had that problem yet with any if mine. One pair (my white 70s tube sock) came with the stiching a little off, so the color is separated, but that’s more color than quality of their performance.

I didn’t run a 5K… my first month without a race since August!

I did join a running club and try speed workouts for the first time.

(Out of curiosity, do you find that the procompression socks make a difference, compared to non-compression socks? I’m interested in giving them a go but hesitant to shell out.)

Running club? That’s fun!!! You should have a good time.

I feel a difference during the run, my legs don’t feel as tired. However, during recovery, I don’t notice a difference. My sister is the opposite, during the runs she doesn’t notice much, but for afterwards recovery she does.
Not sure if you’ve heard of Pavement Runner but he’s one of their ambassadors and has a permanent code for 40% off (PR40). $25 to try a pair is a little better than 50%. I haven’t tried other brands (cep, inijii or however its spelt) but I like ProCompression. Plus they have a variety of colors.
I also use the trainers (ankle socks) when I’ll be on my feet ALL day long and notice they don’t hurt and they are not swollen at the end of the day.

Hmm… I’m definitely intrigued. Thanks for the info! And for the tip about Pavement Runner!

No problem!!

That still sounds like a productive month to me 🙂 way to go on the burpees. I don’t think I’ve done one in at least 6 months.

Comment by Falyn @ Slacker Runner

It’s the most I’ve done. I stayed clear of burpees my entire life, up until that week. I like your schedule better. 1 every six months I can handle.
