Today was suppose to be a run day, it was also a beautiful day to run and I didn’t have to go to work. But my legs and knee’s don’t really hurt but feel uncomfortable, like if I run they would start hurting. I think that I’m not running correctly, meaning I really don’t have a training regiment that I follow. I just run; I’m up to 7 or 8 miles every other day now and I think I might be pushing myself too much maybe too fast? I just don’t know. In the words of Deep Digger Dan “I don’t know, I just don’t know.”
When I was only running 4 or 5 miles I would run every day and it seemed like I was getting a better workout, but because I have the Ragnar Trail Run in April of this year and the Disney Gooffy run April 2016 (5K, 10K, 1/2, and full Marathon) I’ve been trying to bump up my long distance. 9 miles seems to be my wall right now. I just think I’m doing something wrong. I notice other BLOGers do long and short run’s not sure if this is a preference or some secret they hold to better training.
I hate not being able to run and I have to force myself not to run when my body feels as it does now. As a matter of fact if I don’t run two days in a raw I feel like crap. I’ll the people I know in my age group (56) think that I’m nuts for running at all and try to give me reasons why I shouldn’t. I don’t know, I just don’t know – Please excuse my ramblings; I’m bothered I didn’t run today.
