After such a positive training session on Monday, I was really looking forward to running last night. As I started my warm up my calves and hamstrings were really tight. I started my run with the intention of running an easy 4-5 miles. About a 1/4 mile into the run my calves were still tight and my knee started to feel a little tight as well.
In the end I completed about 3 miles, between jogging and walking it was about 11 min per mile. Just an Terrible Training Day. I think I may take today off and get back at it on Thursday. See how my body feels later.
Have you ever had a terrible training day? How did you handle it?
Training plan has me doing speed training tonight, may use a rest day and defer the speed training.
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
