I never thought a week and a half off from running would cause me to back track. I did my first long run yesterday after the doctor's ordered rest for the leg strain. Now mind you, a long run for me is only 3.5 miles. Well, I pushed through it despote the fact that my legs started to feel heavy towards the end. This morning my quads are so terribly sore. I didn't notice how sore they actually were until I tried to get up off the floor after sitting there for an hour wrapping Christmas presents. YIKES!
I will stretch out today, maybe do some pilates to loosen up. My next scheduled running day is tomorrow. I will go. And I will do the best I can. And I will love it because I always do - at least after the fact. :)
