All Your Base Are Belong To Us

Just finished up a 5 mile run.  I just can't help to think that I've lost my running base.  Before winter really set in and work ramped up, I was doing 14 mile long runs on the weekend.   I may be overreacting but it seemed like this 5 miles was tough.  I got a little pain in the side, my legs were achy, I was thinking more of the warm shower at the end than working the lactic acid through my legs.

The redeeming quality is that taking the stairs at work today hurt which was from my 4 miles yesterday.  This wasn't a nasty pain but a "I'm trying to recover and you are making me take the stairs" kind of pain.  That felt good.

Of course... all this whining could be contributed to the fact that I was working at an average 8:14 pace tonight and a 8:30 pace yesterday.  Both with occasional bouts with a strong headwind.  Yes.. I'll chalk it up to that.

  1. Your base will come right back! And a headwind? 5 miles into wind's gotta be worth 7, right??
