I was pretty darned sore after that treadmill effort on Monday. Running a 20min first 3 miles and then a 16:30 didn't feel all that bad....but oooof I sufferend on Wednesday.
Tuesday I ran 5 miles on the W&OD at 6:53 pace. My left hip was really tight and hurting and my right calf was a little sore. Wednesday I felt like I could barely walk. Each time I got up from my desk at work my calf was really tight. My hip wasn't as bad Wednesday, but that calf was horrible.
I decided to take the day off and went to Yoga instead. I went to Down Dog in Herndon because they offer a 1 week free trial membership. Free sounded good so off I went in my green leisure suit. My halloween costume was a big hit there. I hadn't been to yoga in a long while and it didn't take long to remember exactly why I like it......holy hell the chicks!! I met a nice girl named Kelly and set my magic carpet down right behind her. NICE!!! During the class I also fell in love with my teacher. whoa!!
Thursday I did my 5 mile lunchtime run and felt horrible. I normally do the loop anywhere from 36min - 38:30 and yesterday I ran 40:10. Everything was tired. That yoga was tough. Last night I went to yoga again and Kelly met me there. She's a cutie. Got the same instructor, damn....married. Last night was a killer. I was so sore from Wednesday night that I was barely making it through the class. Wednesday I was really working all the poses and trying really hard. Thursday I was just hanging in there. Even found myself doing nothing occasionally when nobody was looking. I was TIRED!!
Today I ran the 5 mile loop again nice and easy and I still felt really horrible and heavy but my time was 36:50, so right in line with always. My back and shoulders are just really tired from yoga. probably my hips and things are really fatigued too and I just don't feel it. I'll see how I feel tomorrow. I'll either do an hour run or I'll stick to my 5's. I'll be right on 30 miles I think for the week. Not many miles but I can tell the consistancy is really helping.
