Jones’ soccer practice was cancelled and Beer Geek got home late from work. BUT! I had put on my running clothes before that happened. (I really didn’t feel like running, so I used the old put the clothes on and then feel stupid if you don’t run trick). Beer Geek told me to go running while he ate dinner with the boys and to run for as long as I wanted.
I wanted to run for 6 miles. I ran 3.5 unpleasant miles. My legs are just not recovered yet. They felt like lead the whole time and then towards the end, my hamstring started having issues. I’ve never had hamstring issues, so I have no idea where that came from. Then my tummy decided it wanted in on the action, so the last bit was a rather uncomfortable sprint towards home. I feel like my body is suddenly falling apart. I’ll try an easy run tomorrow and then I’ll have another couple of days off while I focus on my other love: beer.
Now I’m going to try and make my Garmin and my Mac play nice together. Garmin says I have to delete some laps and I don’t want to, so I’m going to try to actually download to the computer. Wish me luck.

good luck 🙂 glad you got a run in but sorry it was a tough one. Hope tomorrow is better
I’m sorry your run was so tough! I’m sure your legs will be happy soon. Like you said, take it easy for a while.
I think you just need more time to recovery. Hang in there!
3.5 is better than none at all! hope you feel better on your next run 🙂
Be sure to keep taking care of yourself. Recovery is just as important as training. :o)
Something is always better than nothing 🙂 Take care of yourself ;-)Gah it’s me but I just realized I’m under the wrong account and am too lazy to delete what I wrote and do it again 😛
Sorry the run didn’t go as smoothly as you’d have liked, but you’re due for a good one anytime now.
Sorry about the tough run – I'm sure you'll be back to your usual awesome runs soon. Hope the Garmin & Mac cooperate.
Hope you’re patting yourself on the back for even getting out there. It’s runs like those that remind us, in hard parts of races, that we’re familiar with and able to cope with pain and discomfort. At least that’s what I tell myself …
Good job getting out there, even if it wasn’t a great run. I think more rest (and beer) should do the trick. Good luck with the Garmin/Mac.
Beer makes everything better, sister. It’s a Mommy’s kiss right on the boo-boo.But ten of ’em?A PUNCH IN TEH FACE!1!
Sorry about the run. Hopefully it turns around for you soon! Good luck with the garmin and mac. my two aren’t on speaking terms at the moment 🙂
