My diet wasn't as good as it should have been.

I was running 5K but also encountering frequent leg muscle issues.
Had them treated (physio, chiro) which helped somewhat.
But I'm hopng that losing 7-10 pounds will make it a bit easier on the body.

Also I'm more interested more in improving my 5K time than running 10K or longer. Not sure which is more painful - running harder or longer - but they both are fairly brutal.

I've also started compound lifts. Just front squat (machine) and deadlift, about 2x week with my other weights.

Good luck in your training!
