my first few miles were sluggish; arms couldn't pump, legs were dead and didn't want to pick up off the ground. dragging for sure. i was able to pick it up a bit once i was warm, but i was still moving at a slow pace and didn't have the desire or energy to kick it into gear. i had planned to run my 11-mile loop this morning...i did my 5.5-mile loop instead.
i am still in my recovery stage after TOU...today was the last day of the 2-week period...so i guess this can be justified a bit. i was angry at the weather when the rain was hitting my eyes and the wind was sucking away my air...and i was only going 5.5 miles. i thought of all the runners who are gutting out 26.2 miles right now in st. george (hopefully it's better weather down there).
