Runnin' Along...

So in a matter of three days I've managed to run 17 miles... again... for the who knows what week in a row. My legs... omg... can they feel all that runnin' or what! The runnin' routine for the week calls for a longish run Sunday, Pacers Tuesday, MoCo Runners Track workout Wednesday, and Pacers yet again on Thursday. Due to heavy down pours on Sunday there was no long run. Tuesday called for the Sligo Creek Scenic Run with Pacers. Down to Sligo Creek Park... then a more scenic route back to the store through parts of Silver Spring. Wednesday's track workout was a killer to my legs... 10x400s with a 400 recovery between each. Held the 400s all under 1:50... which is pretty good... knowing I've been MIA from track for gosh who knows how long. Then tonight once again was the Pacers Fun Run. Tonight's route called for the Infamous Alaska route... taking us fun runners up and down rollers through Silver Spring. The run was perfect minus the disgustingness factor of the humidity in the air. As I said my legs are pretty much out of gas. I really don't want to hear the word run again until Sunday... when I get out for a long one.

My legs are cashed too! Feel like a couple pieces of lead. Good to hear you're back in the saddle.

The sticky-nasty factor didn't help anyone's legs last night ... we, and especially you, get bonus points just for getting out there. Hope your legs enjoy some much-needed rest!

Great job on the 17 miles. I had no idea what people were talking about being sore after a lot of mileage until I passed the 5 mile mark. My legs hurt for days.

Hot damp and nasty - tell me about it. Two words for you - SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI!
