AM: Still tired but not as bad as yesterday morning. Ran
from home today and just did three outer loops of SH and then an inner loop.
Saw BC drive by on my last loop I’m sure he thought I was dying as I felt like
I was. Even though I felt a little better than yesterday my quads were just so
unresponsive. But I’ll be a turtle and focus on slow and steady wins the race.
At least this week it does… Mi 10-T1 Avg. 8:40
PM: What a difference a day can make. During work I was in a mental daze as things seemed to be moving in sludge. But by the time I was ready to head home things were coming together. After dinner we took a family walk in the "nice" 96F weather. Then after waiting around for about an hour for things to cool down I decided it wasn't going to get any better and just went out the door. For the first time in over a week my legs weren't wrecked from the gun. On my way up Foothill (exact same run as yesterday) I decided I'd cook on the way back and try and melt the lead out of my legs. After a sip from Christine's fountain I decided it was time to go. The return has a nice amount of descent for the way back as I mentioned yesterday and I hit the first mile in a comfortable 6:00 (148ft d; 76ft a), then I decided to really let loose. There were a couple (very brief) spots that I saw 4:5#. However, the way I run back the last quarter mile is slightly uphill again and I slowed back to 6:## but finished in 5:35 (170ft d; 52ft a). It was nice to get moving again and prove to myself that the last week was just recovery and that there is still some speed in the old legs... Mi 4-T1 Avg. 6:54
