June 13th: Post 5k Maintenance and a Jump Rope Session.
Good news . . . Good News! I felt much better following my 5k than I thought that I would. I was tired but not nearly as sore as I expected to be. I put a lot of work into post race maintenance, and it really paid off. I didn't stop after the race. My wife and I walked around for a good 30 mins following the run, I the stretched, and iced my knees. That night I took some some anti-inflammatory and used some Flexall on the portions of my legs that were still sore. Then on Sunday, I went to the gym and skipped rope for 30 mins. Don't get me wrong, I am sore but not as bad as I had feared.
