<p>Started off the morning with 17:00 of stretching and 5:00 of core. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>4 points plus 5 bonus points for Team Lactic Asses.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Running at noon and going to the gym tonight - should be a better points day for me.</p>

Thought the bonus only counted if you stretched pre or post run.</p>

<p>5 miles easy as a warm up, the leg felt okay, so I decided to do a 1 mile ON, 1 mile OFF run from there on, where I would run the ON miles harder but not too hard.  This one went very well.<br><br>
12.25 miles running = 49 points</p>
<p>1/2 mile cool down walk = 2 points.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>51 total points for Team Lactic <strong>A</strong>sses.<br><br>

Well, I said you get a bonus if you participate in a yoga/stretching class or stretch 15 minutes pre or post run.  I've seen others post about their stretching sans run and I think that any stretching is good stretching.  A 15 minute morning stretch would be on par with a 15 minute yoga session, which would count for a bonus so I hereby officially decree that any 15 minutes of stretching will count for a bonus.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I hope that doesn't come in too late and skew anyone's point accrual. </p>

<p>4 mile run.  16 points Team Lactic Asses.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm glad the stretching in the morning counts towards the bonus because I run on my lunch break and can't stretch for 15 minutes pre- or post- run and still run any significant miles.  That would eat up 2 miles right there. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yes, I would say that the stretches I do are equivalent to a 15:00 stretching or yoga class.  Some of the movements are prescribed by my chiropractor.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Looking forward to going to the gym tonight.   I hope.    Lots of cancelations lately.</p>
