Juneathon Day 10: Back On The Wagon

It seems that I fell off the Juneathon wagon a little earlier than I’d hoped. Last week’s return to running and the beginnings of a new yoga adventure left me feeling pretty drained by Friday so I decided to take a couple of extra rest days to let my body recover. And it seems to have paid off.

Tonight the training plan called for 5K and Fartlek. I wasn’t sure how much I would be able to do, but I was ready to climb back on the old wagon and give it a go.

The truth is that, much as I like those long slow runs, I kind of miss that feeling of pushing the pace to that trance like state where the only thing that matters is the rhythm of my feet on the pavement and the air pumping through my lungs.

Of course, that didn’t happen. Not tonight anyway. Tonight was more of the same long slow plodding to make sure I got the distance covered, but with a couple of short bursts of speed – not many, but enough to know that I can still pick up the pace.

The legs were still feeling a bit heavy for most of the run, but they are getting better. Hopefully some yoga tomorrow will help to loosen things up and I’ll be ready to take on a bit more distance on Thursday.

Until then, happy Juneathon!

    wow, sorry to hear your legs have not fully recovered. I didn’t realize it would take so long…but what do I know, I’ve never attempted more than 10K!! Hang in there, I’m sure it won’t be long :-)
