Yep, after yesterday I am pretty sore... I never learn.
On the other hand when I had to run in order to catch the bus this morning the running movement felt super! And sure enough, from the very first step of my lunch run I felt really good. Funny how walking can be tough but running can be easier?
Today was my first attempt at a tempo run since my injury last August and it went okay. I did fade a bit toward the end and was hating life on all the inclines (which are totally tame on this route) so I still have a long way to go but fun nonetheless. Looking at my watch I saw 7:10 most of the time which was great. I started out thinking I would try for something under 7:15 but that dream faded right quick... I guess sub 7:30 is not bad right now considering I have done exactly zero fast running in the last five months.
