Look!! You can finally see grass in our front yard! Maybe some day all the snow will be gone.
Today’s run was not much fun. I was supposed to do 8 miles and there was just no way that was going to happen. I woke up tired. My quads were a bit stiff (the ice bath definitely helped my feet and calves though). It was cold, grey, and windy. I thought about skipping it all together, but decided that even if it was a short, slow run, it would be good for my legs. All I can really say about it is that I finished 4 miles. I think I may be on the edge of overtraining. I’m always tired and my legs never seem fresh. Thankfully, next week is a fallback week, so hopefully I’ll feel better when my next hard week starts. I’m also hoping to get new tires for the car, get a haircut, and buy some new shoes. It’s amazing how little “free” time you have when you run 30+ miles a week at my slow pace. I’d love to be a fast runner if only so that it would take up less of my time LOL.
