Not so fast…

Distance: 3 mi

Miles to go: 1923

In a reminder of who is boss, my body kind of rebelled on me yesterday.  I had planned on running 4 miles at an 8:30 pace on the treadmill and try to push the last one.   Reality set in and I ended up running 3 miles at a 9:30 pace.  Stiff, sore, tired, leg weary, etc.  I had it all.  The vast majority of it was just the increased activity level catching up with me.  I was a bit sore from the injury (more so today) but I’ll live.  I’m going to take today off completely and then I may run tomorrow early or wait until I get to the hotel (travel for business) and do some treadmill time there… We’ll see.

I volunteered at one of our bigger races this morning.  Last year it had over 800 runners in the snow.  This year the weather was even worse with temperatures in the upper 30s and pouring rain.  That has GOT to be my most hated weather conditions…  I don’t mind running in the rain.  I don’t mind running when it’s cold.  But being cold AND wet at the same time just pisses me off.  I’m really glad I wasn’t running (even though I wanted to!!).  Attendance was off, with only about 600 idiots  hearty souls willing to brave the elements.  Still not bad.  I can’t wait to see how this run goes off on a good year.  It’s kind of the official kick off to the big run season so from now until the end of June there will be two or three races per weekend.

Anyway, congrats to my friends who PR’d today and to those few crazies who did a super mega ultra weekend down south (something like a 20 miler Friday, a 50K today and another 20 miler tomorrow…  that’s just sick.).  You inspire me!
