I had enough creaks and groans to be a haunted house after Saturday’s workout. Fatigue is in check but the legs were talking. Everything from the knees to the hamstrings. No real pain but a soreness that I know can develop into something worse if I don’t tend to it. So with next Sunday’s race in mind, I’ve started the recovery three days earlier than originally planned. Yesterday’s recovery run just wasn’t sufficient, so I went out again this morning for a nothing run. Felt sluggish due to the run being over before I even woke up. But I got some blood flow in there and just crawled around town for 48 minutes.
I didn’t enjoy this morning’s run really but had to be done. I was feeling slow and the weather was unsettled with some strong wind gusts out of the east. The ocean was choppy and I saw part of one tree down. The pain is diminishing as expected and I think by next weekend I’ll be ready to roll. Looks like tomorrow’s hill workout will have to be changed into something a little more civilized. I wonder if Eric will do the hills solo? It’d be fun to watch and yell commentary.
