Tonight’s Run

September 4, 2008 3 comments

The first half of tonight’s run went really well, but the second half was tough thanks to my decision to run yesterday on my scheduled day off.  Between the 3 and 3.5 mile mark of my 5 mile loop, I have to run up a pretty steady incline, and once I reached the top tonight, I really thought I was going to have to stop.  It wasn’t that my legs couldn’t take it, but my core muscles just felt exhausted.  That’s a little depressing considering I used to run 10+ miles in a single run, but I pushed on and made it home without stopping, which felt VERY good.  I did spend the first five minutes after my run lying on the front porch, debating whether to roll to the door or go for my cool down walk.  I went for my walk.  It felt good.
