Well, I played basketball for the first time in 6 months on Tuesday morning. I ended up playing straight for about 75 minutes, and was sore everywhere within an hour. Probably not the smartest thing I've ever done, but I had fun.
That resulted in Wednesday being a rest day. My hip flexors were more sore than they've ever been, along with the outsides of my calves. I decided Wednesday that Thursday's long run would be a slugfest.
Thursday's long run didn't happen. I woke up early knowing I had to have my 20 miles done by 8:30 am, so that I could have breakfast ready for Ellie and Eddy (my Thursday tradition). I woke up to see the Garmin hadn't charged, my shoes were still wet, and my headphones had busted.
Instead of gutting out some miles, I decided I'd run 'later.' Yeah, right. And SteveQ will run later in the day, when it 'warms up.' --ps, I have NO IDEA why I can't make a link work. I type it in...and for some reason blogger sticks "left-right-blahblahblah" in front of it. I give up.
So Thursday slowly slipped away, and now I'm looking at a total of 15 miles on the week so far, when my goal was 50.
BUT, I'm gonna get 50 in.
Tonight will be a 10 miler after Eddy's sleeping, and tomorrow will be another 10.
Looking ahead to Sunday, it appears I'll still get to take part in a 20 mile slugfest with Mother Nature. Bring it!
