Recovery sucks, every day after last weekend I have wanted to get out and run somewhere. I just wanted to put my shoes on and hit the road, but I knew my body could not physically do it. I walked as much as possible for the last week but it was not enough. This morning I woke up at 6am and went to meet TWRC group at Starbuck's for a few miles. I decided to run 2.5 and take it easy, well I did not have a choice because about half a mile into my run my legs started to tighten up and I had to walk. In fact for the 2.5 mile run I had planned I ended up walking at least half of it. So recovery sucks when your mind needs the rush and the high you get from running but your body says no. I guess I will keep reminding myself that I did run 50 miles a week ago and to get over it. Here's to a few more miles this week, I hope.
