When the Results Don't Match the Effort!

I knew I was going to be sore today, I could tell that when I laid down in bed last night.  I WAS RIGHT!  I do love to be right!  Well I woke up this morning and to my amazement I could walk, granted I had to walk with straight legs because the idea of bending my knees was just too much.

So off to run we went.  The warmer my legs got the better the pain in the legs, but still hurting pretty bad.  I told my running buddies that I was sending them up every hill I could think of so that their legs would hurt like mine...I guess misery really does love company.  The only thing is I didn't really take into consideration that I was going to have to run them too. 

I actually felt pretty good during the run.  I ran up the hills as far as I could and then walked to the top, just FYI: walk breaks up steep hills, not so much of a relaxing walk break!  I was trying really hard even on the uphill walks but the entire time I was moving so slow.  I tried taking bigger steps and faster steps but nothing.  It was like running through sand. 

By mile 5.5 I was really beginning to get sore and hurt.  Everything from my navel to knees was on fire.  At this point even the down hills were starting to hurt.  We finally gave it up at mile 6.  I was happy to make it past 3 miles because I was ready to be done.  I choose not to do anything else this morning to rest my legs a bit but I will get something in tonight, I just don't know what yet.  And I have my shorts tonight, I double checked before I left the house!
