Thursday I was hellbent on running outside. I drove into town as soon as I got off work and got started. I felt okay. For a mile or two. And then I didn’t feel so okay anymore. I kept a nice steady pace right where I wanted it (I was very intentionally keeping all my runs easy this week, for recovery purposes as well as saving my legs for RnR St. Louis.), but I felt like I was running through quicksand. With ankle weights on. And a weighted vest. I started doing math while I was running… Saturday 5.1. Sunday 18. Tuesday 5. Wednesday 5. Thursday 8. No fuckin’ wonder my legs were tired! That’s 41.1 miles in 6 days! I know that’s nothing to some of you guys, but for me that’s A LOT. Too bad my training weeks are calculated from Monday to Monday rather than Saturday to Saturday. I don’t even get to claim that as a PDR!
And then Sunday was the Rock n Roll St. Louis Half, which gets a post of its own!
