It’s funny, the small things that make a difference. Took a run last night for the first time in about a month or so (yeah, I’ve been either that busy or exhausted- I play volleyball roughly weekly, though, so I’m doing something at least). At any rate… jogging. I have a tendency of ‘hunching up’ my shoulders, which in turn gives my lower back added stress (and, since I still feel the remnants of popping it from years ago, that’s not exactly pleasurable). So I made a concentrated effort at keeping my shoulders low, and looking ahead, not down. 
 
It’s odd, but my arms felt… stronger. Like they weren’t being curtailed from pumping in unison with my legs. And my stride felt longer- despite not running in a month, I felt MUCH better than I did last time. Took it at a relaxed pace- I figure somewhere above an 8 minute mile, but I wasn’t pushing myself terribly to get that.
