So I had a great week running wise last week but this week is off to a slow start! I found a short route near my house that I feel safe running, and thought I could just keep doing laps until I got to three miles. Half a mile in my left foot started hurting really bad, my shins felt broken, and my right calve muscle kept tightening up. I finished out a mile and almost broke down into tears. What the hell?! I even took a rest day yesterday.
I figure there a few factors that may have played into this.
1. My daughter has the flu right now, I haven't been feeling great, maybe I have a little virus. Who knows?
2. The last time I ran I really pushed myself, maybe too hard?
3. It was like 20 degrees outside. I haven't run in that kind of temperature and I could definetly tell the difference. I wore capri pants. Bad. Very bad.
Anyhoo, getting out there again tomorrow! :) EEk!
