Off Day

Off Day

After logging 14 miles over four days this week, this morning was an off day. Turns out, whomever wrote up the running plan knew what he/she was doing because my legs really needed the rest. My knees are a bit sore and my right calf has some seriousness tightness in it.
Even so, I still feel like I wanted/needed to run today. Instead, I slept in until 6:45. WOO-HOO!
Tomorrow is my first real “long” run of my training. 8 Miles. It’s not the longest distance I have ever run, that’s for sure, but after logging 14 miles this week, the 8-miler will be more of a test to see how my legs react. I planned to do it bright and early in the morning, but will now be going out on a boat with my son and his friend on Lake Lanier.

You know you’re addicted to something when you have the chance to go out on a boat on a Saturday morning and you hesitate because it means that you have to delay your running schedule.
I now plan to run at about 7:30 at night along the Silver Comet Trail. We are going to make it a family outing, minus one. Kyle will be at a birthday party, so Emily and Alicia will be coming along for the ride, literally. They plan to ride their bikes on the trail while I run. Should be a good family day!
