Wednesday’s Agenda: 7-mile run.
Today’s Agenda: 4-mile run.
My body has recovered after AFC half-marathon…mostly. There are still some minor aches. Yesterday I woke up to find most the soreness vanished. I can walk downstairs without grunting. My arms can be raised above my head. Constant fatigue, gone. I woke a whole new person.
A change in routine was made now that Melissa is back in school. Seven miles is tough to get in before she leaves so we did a night the first night run of our marathon training.
The heat in late afternoon beat down on me. The first mile was fine but I died soon after. Walk breaks were constant. I turned back home early because I accepted the fact today was “one of those days.” I completed 4 of the 7 miles on the schedule. Today, the heat won.
Sleep felt so good after that experience. It was short. Had to get up by 5:00 a.m. to do today’s 4-mile run.
While no soreness is really felt during non-activity hours, running makes me aware of it. I kept going for 2 miles before I had to walk. I was done fighting the fatigue. Minimizing my effort, I did a lot of walking home.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s rest-day.
