I thought I’d do a run to my new club to pick up the vest all new members need to collect. I wasn’t sure how far it was, but didn’t think it would be too difficult. What I found was it was hard from the start - stiff legs that didn’t want to loosen up, but I managed to get to the club and stretched them out a bit.
The run back started better with a couple of decent splits, then the legs faded and I ended up walking / jogging back home. Felt like I’d run a marathon uphill several times when I got in - I’ve never felt so bad after a run. Feeling great this morning though!
I’m going to leave the bike at home this morning and drive to work today to get some rest before the next long run with the club on Thursday. The only reason I can think of for my poor performance is my 6.5 mile commute each way on my bike is not helping.
