Is there such a thing? If there is that's what I have this morning. My legs are rebelling after my 11.5 miles last night. I kept the pace slow and easy since it was a followup to my interval session on Tuesday. I still ran out of juice at the end of my run. I'm not stressing about it though, because I'm happy that I even got out for the run. I only got five hours of sleep the night before. My food for the day consisted of six (that's right - count 'em - six) rice cakes with about two tablespoons of almond butter and some honey plus a couple of plums and a peach. I was stuck at my desk late and didn't get started until well after 6 PM. I was concerned that all those things were going to stack up against me. But I just kept my head down and my pace slow and steady. Two hours later I was back at the car. Tired, cramping, and *completely* spent. But I pulled it off.
Today I'm paying for it though. My quads are really sore and tired. Even if I wanted to head out for a run right now I wouldn't be able to. But unlike a couple of weeks ago, my adductors and lower back are feeling good. Am I making progress here? If so, it sure is about time!
Today is a scheduled rest day. I'm charging up the camera. I'll try to bring back some photos of that little band from Texas.
