I had cramps in my hamstrings last night while sitting at the computer and then I got one cramp in my left calf just before dawn while I was sleeping. Don't you just love those?
I definitely woke up sore, but I got through my day and went out for an easy run after work. I wanted to run 3 miles, but my usual loops are 2.5, 4, or 5 miles. I went for the 4 mile loop and sure enough, that was more than I was prepared to run. My first mile was 8:38 and my second mile was 8:00. It felt really good. I wasn't pushing myself that hard, but I was running mostly in the shade of large Southern Oak trees. When I came around the second half of my course, the shade disappeared and so did my energy. I slowed down a little and even walked for 30 seconds when I was about half a mile from finishing.
In the end, I ran 4 miles in 35:31.
My feet are hurting right now and I think it is lingering effects from yesterday's workout.
