The legs ached a bit yesterday morning, so I tried to keep the pace mellow. I've been getting sore legs the day after longer runs, which is a bit of a bummer. This time it happened the day after only a 14 mile run, but I guess I either covered too many hills or I just ran through the heat too long. As a result I called off my planned double yesterday after needing (and taking) a short nap. Last week I put myself through the wringer a bit too much by stacking all the longer and harder runs at the end of the week (post vacation), so easing up yesterday before the quicker effort today and the long run tomorrow seemed wise.
Today's quicker run came off quite well, as I found myself on pace almost as soon as I left the driveway. I'm hoping I can say the same thing after tomorrow's long effort, as it's been some time since I've finished a long run with much left in reserve.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.
