Warm up to lake loop, then a 5 mile tempo. went 5:15, 5:12, 5:13, 5:12, 5:04. Felt suprisingly easy for what I thought were quick times. But really just felt like a quick run. Also heated my back before practice which seemed to be good.

I hope your back gets better soon.

The muscles in my lower back sometimes tighten up when I am running intervals. What I like to do is bend over like I am going to touch my toes, then in that position, take a deep breath from the diaphram and hold it, which for me really stretches the muscles in my back.

Also strengthen your abdominals.

And be sure to wear warm clothing!!

None of that shirtless stuff.

You have to keep the muscles nice and warm to keep the blood vessels open so that the muscles get plenty of blood.

There is some great clothing on the market (at least here in Japan) that is very lightweight, that keeps the heat in and lets moisture out.

Congrats on a great Tempo run.

I enjoy reading your posts. :)
