My Legs Hurt - Not Enough Rest

Tuesday, I ran to Circuit City and part of the way back. 2 miles.

Wednesday evening, I ran around the outer sidewalk of Lake Eola Park. 4 times... that's 5 miles in 38:03. That ends up being 7:37 per mile. I was going for 8 minute pace.

The run felt great and it was much needed after a stressful day. I had some friends up from Miami and didn't eat until after midnight. I ran around 7 - 8pm. I didn't get to sleep until after 2am and didn't get enough sleep/rest/recovery. My legs are sore like I hadn't run in a month.

This really shows how important rest is.
