Yesterday just trashed me and I’m not sure why. I was miserably tired, hobbling and sore all day. Today I feel a bit groggy, but otherwise fine. I can go up and down stairs without a problem. I’m really not sure what happened. I may have run a little faster than I wanted to, but only 10 seconds a mile or so.
I think the only thing different was the weather. I haven’t run in a deluge like that in a long time. The water wasn’t just “standing” in puddles. It was roaring off to the sides, down the gutters and streets and for the first part of the run it was dark so you couldn’t even avoid it. You just ran through whatever came up. But there was a lot more side to side motion and jumping (although once your shoes get wet… why bother?) Anyway, that’s the only thing I can think of that was different. I guess the only way to test it is to wait for another big rain and then run in it again and see if it poops me out… Which, around here lately, shouldn’t be long… Like… This afternoon, maybe?
