Tuesday, I did a bit of cross training for my morning workout: chest & arms followed by 40 minutes on the bike. Since I had written down “3 1/2 miles running”, I was determined to get that run in. It was getting late and there was time pressure so I got on the treadmill and ran a 5K pace. I worked up a great sweat. My mood was so far elevated, I could touch the moon all day!
What didn’t seem like it was going to be much of a workout left me feeling OH SO GOOD!
Wednesday morning an 8 mile run was on the schedule but it ended with a 10 miler. I got up, not in the mood for treadmill running even though it was dark and early, and ran the well lit streets along the Parkway. I fueled up with HammerNutrition Sustained Energy (1/3 bag) mixed with 1 TBS Hammer Gel Montana Huckleberry. At mile 4 1/4, I had a Hammer Gel Montana Huckleberry packet. At mile 6, my legs were a little tired but I kept moving, working in a few strides. Garmin read 8.2 as I got to the back door. Ted was just getting back from his 3 mile run and thought I had already taken Shane. POOOORRRR Shane! He wanted to go out. I hooked up the pup and off we went for another 2. AMAZINGLY…my legs and the rest of me felt SUPER for those last two miles. See what 5 minutes rest can do? Maybe there is something to that run-walk race technique?!!!
Aches and pains along the way: The medial area of the bottom left foot started aching with an on-and-off pain. When I got home, I pressed and poked and prodded but it felt ok. Ghost pain? The other concern was a pain in my right knee during miles 7 to 8. That went away when I ran with Shane. I don’t mind these kinds of pains. It’s those that stay with you AFTER the run that really bug me.
