Oh... long run Wednesday on the treadmill... how I loathe you.
It was about 90 degrees out (no exaggeration) when we headed over to the gym. I knew that would mean it would be even hotter than usual, and the gym did not disappoint. Within the first few minutes, I was already sweating and I knew it was going to be a long hour. However, it was NOT the worst run ever. (Again?!)
Something to think about. I'm not sure if it is because of the hill workout I did the other day or because I've added a few more miles to my normal running week, but I was a little sore throughout the workout. Sore in my shins, and a bit around my right knee (which is NOT the knee I had surgery on that bothers me on occasion). Good news is that my quads didn't hurt at all - which is what I injured back in December.
Only took a brief water break around 4 miles, and while it was slow going, I managed a quicker pace than the last few weeks.
As an aside, I think I'm already wearing out my shoes. I'm on the lookout for a new pair that I'll probably need to buy and start training in sometime after the next race.
