so yesterdays run was miserable. plain and simple. i walked all (or most of it). i figure its because i am a physical wuss (weakling...whatever you want to call it) but I read this article at the suggestion of my DH and start to wonder...
Anyhow, my legs still hurt today from yesterday even when i got to the rink and i couldnt get my legs to do what i want them to do. As a result, I did a lot of edge work and learned a couple of new footwork sequences (yay! maybe my skating future is in ice dancing rather than singles...) Then i came home and resolved to run again today (because i wont have time tomorrow...thank you conference night....and i am NOT running friday night just before an 8am race). DH went with me and kept me going when i didnt want to and i ended up going 1.55 mile on very tired legs. I am still walking a lot more than I realize but when i run, i am keeping a good pace, etc. now the trick is to lengthen them...a little at a time.
My goal for this saturday still stands at "finish"...I can worry about time next weekend at my second 5k.
off to ice my aching muscles now.
