recovery to write home about
well, not really, but I'm sitting here waiting for it to be 8:30 and time to apply a patch to a server (my husband asked, "is it leaking?") so I may as well take a minute to write about my day. Which was, without a doubt, recovery with a lower-case "r." I woke up this morning much more sore than I can remember being the day after a long run, just tired and achy and feeling like crap. Ran 5.25 at something slower than 9:30 pace. The 40-minute drive to work usually tells me what my body really feels like that day; if I limp more than a few strides after getting out of the car, I know I need to watch it. After this morning's commute I knew I needed to watch it.
All day long I felt crappy and tired and grouchy, but I forced myself to the gym for 3.75 nothing miles on the treadmill and wouldn'tcha know I began to feel good! I played aroud with pace and incline, and when I was done I felt better than I had all day. I even hopped on the stair machine for 15 minutes. Let's hope this carries over to the tempo run tomorrow.
