Seemed like a good idea at the time...

Continuing in the insanity vein:

What made me think it was a good idea to run half marathon distance only 4 days after having my ass handed to me in a wicked 15k? Oh, yeah...insanity. By about the 10 mile mark I was hurting pretty bad. Both of my knees felt pretty shot...with pain sort of radiating up my quads and down my shins (I'm sure this is my legs still complaining about the hills upon endless hills on Saturday). I still had a fair amount of energy and the weather was gorgeous (sunny, some light wind, low 40s)...but holy crap were my legs P.O.'d. Good thing tomorrow is a rest day...I need it.

I need to start doing some abs work, too. I can definitely tell that I need more torso support towards the end of these longer runs. I think I may start doing some crunches tomorrow.

That last beer in the fridge is mine, just in case there was any question.

  3. Ha! And then I was too tired to even drink it. I'm going out to look for Bell's Oberon today, though.

    :D

  4. What is it about nice weather that makes us want to punish ourselves? As if the last 6 months of bad weather wasn't punishment enough! I was supposed to be tapering and did a 10 mile speed session. We are definitely insane.
