I’m Not Going to Sugar Coat It

 

My legs have been sore following my long run Saturday.  On top of that, the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole that I made Sunday, probably hasn’t helped my performance this week either.  I think I’m carrying 5 pounds of water around from sore muscles and too much salt from meals.

I ran the 8 miles today really slow-(forgot to turn Map-My-Run App on right away).  My legs were heavy and at times I felt like I was pulling a caboose.  Here’s the other thing though – I had some respectable hills and ran all of them.  Also, I finished probably feeling better than I started out.

As I said, I’m not going to sugar coat it – just tell it like it is.

Back to more sensible eating – low salt, low fat, low sugar and probably less carbs too.   I’m from the South and fried chicken was a staple at our house growing up – hard to let go of all that good comfort food.

Tomorrow is an easy 4 miles then Saturday is 17.  I have a gift certificate for a massage and will use it Friday to help loosen up those muscles before my Saturday run.  I’m just glad I can run those distances – slowly, but still running.

Have a great day!
