Not all runs are that painful, but I was also careless about my training this week. For the past couple of weeks I've been hitting a lot of PRs in training and it feels and looks good. But, I haven't taken great care of myself. I haven't taken a rest day since Sunday and all of my workouts have been leg-intensive. I will rest tomorrow and Saturday and do my last Lithe class Sunday.
I thought that running was supposed to give me more energy, but I am so tired! At the end of today's run I marveled that I ran only a third od a marathon and the half-marathon I'm training for is an additional FIVE miles. Man, runners be crazy. Actually, I saw a few crazy people in runner shape today and, yeah, runners are crazy or crazy people run. Either way, the shoe fits!
