Before I embarrass myself about last week, let me say that yesterday evening I jogged a pretty good 20 miler that was encouraging. I felt pretty good today, too, so I have the rest of the week to see if I can get my mileage back up. But now, about last week...
After all those things I said in my last update about things looking so good, things took a bad turn. I only ran 11 miles on Monday when I was going to run 25. My legs were hurting and I felt like I was coming down with something. I got through it and decided to try again later in the week.
Tues. 22nd-Wed. 23rd
Feeling kind of sick and still achy, I skipped Tuesday and tried again Wednesday. Yeah, still feeling bad! And my legs weren't better (surprisingly, it was my right leg that was mostly hurting rather than the "broken" leg). I only ran 2 1/2 miles that morning and decided to turn around and walk back.
Thurs. 24th-Fri. 25th
I skipped Thursday, still feeling bad. Then on Friday I was going to see how things went and hopefully get in 20 miles or more. I barely made it 11, walking a good portion of it. By this time I was really ready for this week to go away.
Sat. 26th-Sun. 27th
Skipped Saturday. Took Sunday off as usual. Feeling quite a bit better so I was ready to go for 20-25 miles on Monday morning.
