Ran out of gas!

I went out this morning with the group and logged 8 miles. The way our runs work is we start at home base, run 6 miles, return to home base, then go out for 2 more miles. The first six miles were GREAT...then I got to home base and drank a little bit of water, ate an energy gel and started again. I only paused for like 2 minutes. OH my gosh the last two miles were hard! I got through them but it was hard. My hip flexors started tightening up. I tried to stretch them but it was awful! Ugh. Oh well! This is the 2nd time to do 8 miles and it wasn't like that before!

Also, last week wasn't the greatest running week. I was busy every night and only got to run on Tuesday night. I did 3 miles. So maybe that was the issue with today? Hmmm...

On a side note, WE FINALLY HAVE COLD WEATHER! It was amazing today! Low 60's ... cloudy ... it was great!! I loved it! I was freezing at first but I'd much rather run in the cold than the heat! (Louisiana cold that!)

  1. Good job and even though that one night you only did 3, at least it was something. Take advantage of the cool weather, I find it so much easier to jog when it is cool outside! :)
