Sore to the core

October 6, 2010 at 6:21 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

So, it turns out that taking a (really quite brief!) hiatus from running is affecting me more than I thought it would.

My hamstrings, quads, and glutes were still aching yesterday from the 20-miler on Saturday, and the run last night was a bit of a flop. I tried my best, and I got through the 6 mile loop in just over an hour, but it was a little like dragging my body through mud.

I hope today will be better. I have another 6 miles in the park in store. (Side note – I am totally addicted to the park this year! Last year I was obsessed with Hudson River Park, which is much closer to my apartment, but this year I really only want to run in CP. Weird.) I know the only thing that will make me feel better is more running, so that’s what I’m going to do.

Just two and a half more weeks of really hard work and then we taper. I can’t wait!
