My throat was sore this morning. I knew it was going to be tough hitting 10 miles. I had to stop to blow my nose and suck on a cough drop. And then I stopped again to trade shoes. Yes, I brought a second pair to the gym.
I started with these guys. The old favorites. Glycerin 10s.
The first 3 miles were easy, but I kept having to wipe my nose with my shirt. I decided to stop and get some tissues and a cough drop.
Then I ran 4 more miles, a bit slower than the first 3.
After 7 miles, it was time to switch shoes.
I thought I would go faster with the lighter shoes. I didn't go any faster, but I did feel lighter.
I was going for a sweat angel, but it just turned into a blob. Front and back.
When I was done running, I felt like going home, but I did my 2 rounds of Barbara (one minus the pull ups).
Then I was really done. My legs really don't feel sore until I stop. Maybe I should have kept running. Tomorrow is going to be a doozy.
26 minutes--3 miles
36 minutes--4 miles
Did you run today? How far? Outside or treadmill?
