And a Kick in the Pants - First Time on Track in Three Weeks

3200 warmup

Wind: W at 6 mph
Humidity: 56%

course: Wheaton College track

Was my butt kicked? Thoroughly. Egregiously. 18 days of no running does a man no good. Not me. And, the last two days seemed to be on no help.

My first 400 was around 1:44. Too fast given my fitness. I was not exhausted. Aerobically, I felt OK. My thighs are complaining, however.

As too often is the case, I ran lonely. Fast guys were too fast, and some others were a bit behind me, not close enough for me to drop back. If you are a 20-23:00 5K runner, I'm looking for you. Come on out, give me some company.

Tomorrow is a day off. Saturday, I will run an easy three miles, do some weights (arms and torso only for now). Sunday? Undetermined. Any suggestions?
