86 degrees in November + starting to think I am Superwoman = one hot, tired, and VERY VERY sore Erin.
I think I understand what fellow RW Penguin Damaris was saying about ugh...it's still too darn hot out. I only went 1.78 miles and I felt like I was going to DIE! The worst part actually isn't the sweating...i can swig some water and recover...it's the pain.
Remember how I said on Friday's blog that I pushed myself farther and was rewarded with some achiness in my quads? Then yesterday I walked around Disney...
Well...today my quads and my knees are hurting. It's not a sore muscle...it hurts (slightly...I'm still able to walk) every time I step. I asked my runner DH and he said it was probably more of a bone hurt rather than a muscle hurt...whatever it is, my legs are rebelling...badly. I may not move from the couch (except maybe to take a shower and cook dinner) for a while. Tomorrow, in order to keep myself in a getting out habit, I will probably take the dog for a long walk but I may forego the run...I would like to be able to move on Thursday. But the good thing is that I am going minimum of 1.7 miles or so and thursday is only one mile so maybe i'll get a decent time in my first race.
The heat and my Pandora app f**king up (buffered more than it played) kept me from running as much as I wanted to. I tried to pick it up and even had a semi-decent stride starting to develop until a) my legs hurt and b) my music stopped in its tracks. I really want to have that moment that I have heard people talking about where they pretty much lose themselves in running and dont even realize they are running because they are so lost in thought. I probably would just trip over something
Anyhow, before i completely pass out...here are the specs courtesy of Endomondo:
1 mile split:15:06
not my best but about par for where i have been...anything is better than where i started I suppose. I just get frustrated sometimes that I am not progressing as fast as I want to....
