I’ve run 10.5 miles in the last 72 hours. For me, that’s a lot. First was the 5k Saturday night.
Then 3 miles on the trail on Sunday.
Less than 14 hours after the 5k. BAD IDEA. I was really sore yesterday, and I’m still feeling it today, despite a hot bath with Epsom salts Sunday evening.
This morning, I ran 4.5 miles at the gym.
Four miles at 4.5 mph, .25 at 4.7 mph, and the final .25 at 5.0 mph. Side note: I realize just how much increasing my speed the last quarter- and half-mile has helped me when I had a burst of speed at the end of the 5k Saturday night!
Onward and upward!
