It's Saturday, run day, and I made sure to run. No more resting, no more taking it easy. I might not jump back into 16 miles right away, but short, frequent runs are good.
The actual run was hard and painful. My heart and lungs haven't worked as hard the past few weeks because I haven't been running much, if at all. Heart kept screaming that it was too much work. Legs were lazy as well. Hal said somewhere from 3-6 miles. Initially I had planned to do my "normal" 4.85, but I was fatigued after just over 1. So I changed it. Final distance was 3.5. Not great, but not terrible either for my first run post-cold. Hamstrings and glutes were still a little tight, but I'll keep working them with home yoga and deal with it.
