Still Recovering

I had an 11 mile 'around the block' run planned today. I didn't make that goal. My quads are still tight darnit.
2 miles in, I kept thinking, well, I will get warmed up any time now. The legs are sluggish. Running downhill, only running an 11 minute mile!
Around mile 3, I had a decision to make. Turn right, and finish the 11 mile loop. Go forward, run a loop to the left and decrease the mileage.
I took the forward path and ran 7 miles. Glad I made that decision, the legs did not improve. I was running 13 minute miles-when I was running.
I'm rather frustrated because I don't think my legs should be this tight. All I did last week was walking. My mileage this week is going to be low because of our trip to Cinti for the wine-tasting weekend.
Thursday I had thought of going to Mohican and run a 50K there. With the way the legs feel, I think I will stay closer to home and do mileage on the Salt Fork Trails, and definitely stay off the roads.

  1. Be Smart and Patient.
    RR is no easy Ultra that you should bounce back from.

    Easy efforts until you are recovered.


I would love to hear from you!
