I posted on Sunday about what a busy weekend I have had. Last Thursday I set a personal best at 5k, then I went for a long cycle ride on Saturday (I bike around town, but I've not done anything properly energetic on the bike before), and then on Sunday went for a longer-than-usual run. All went well, and I felt the usual slightly worn but in the "a day off will put it right" kind of way. I got up this morning after a full day off feeling largely recovered, but one of my quads is feeling a bit out of sorts. My logical mind says, "don't go out today because you had a big weekend, and don't overdo things". The problem is, I have agreed to dinner with an old friend tomorrow evening and Thursday evening I'm travelling straight after work for the long weekend. If I don't go out today, I won't be able to go out again until Friday. I want to do a Parkrun on Saturday (I don't live near one, but I will be for the Easter weekend, so want to take advantage of the opportunity). If I take today off, that really means taking the whole week off, which feels pretty lazy to me. My logical brain says, "if you go out today and do yourself some harm, taking a week off running will be the least of your worries". I still feel bad, though.
