Probably not a good idea, but I didn't take my rest day on Monday. I ran 10 miles. Today, again, not following the program. I did my mid-week medium-long run of 14 miles.
There is a little bit of reason why: the cooler weather. We're being blessed with a few days of really nice running temperatures so I'm getting my key longer runs in right now. Anyways, which means I've run almost 58 miles in the past four days. Not good.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I always find my feet and legs ache, particularly when i'm getting up out of bed or standing up.. My legs almost feel like they are unstable. Sometimes, when I'm walking up stairs, I feel so weak. Maybe it's my shoes, but likely it's because I'm running so much.
But slip on a pair of runners and I feel like a different man. I feel like I can run. Not fast all the time, but run I can.
