Yesterday was not only my first run in close to three weeks, but my first run of 2009 in shorts and a TShirt! Perhaps it’s time to retire the tights? Yesterday it was close to 70 degrees, today’s forecast is 50 and rain, boo hoo! I was aiming for 5 miles, but wimped out and only made it 3.25. After deciding to shorten it I thought I was only cutting it down to 4, once I GMaps’ed it, I discovered it was a little too much off the top. Oh well! I finished in 30:02. My HRM was acting funky, it didn’t pickup my HR until a mile or so in. I think I wasn’t sweaty enough to start out. Then about 2 miles in dropped from the 160’s to 80’s. Pretty sure my heart didn’t actually do that. When/if it was working properly I was around the low 160’s for the bulk of the run. For the last 800 yards or so I decided to kick it up and pushed it into the 180’s, that was fun.This morning definitely felt like I haven’t run in a while. I had my famous recovery socks on, so my calves are fine, hamstrings and glutes are a little sore though. Today I was hoping to get a bike ride in, but I’m not sure if the rain will hold out. If there’s rain I guess I’ll just end up at the gym.
