This week running has been more of a challenge than usual. My legs have felt SOOOO heavy. I'm blaming it on all the lower body resistance exercises that I did last Sunday and again on Tuesday of this week. Today especially it was like running through mud, but I dredged through it. I'll relax the rest of the day, and hope the long run tomorrow goes well.
I've just started reading the book Once a runner, by John L. Parker, Jr., and fictional story about distance runners. One of the "master's/track club runners" has a program that always gives the young guys dead legs when they try to keep up with his mileage for a week. So, I'm hoping I'll have a great pay off by running through these dead legs this week....I'll try to stay optimistic.
