Well, considering that 10 miles on Saturday was supposed to be 16, I’d say overall not so great.
The 8 mile run on Saturday went great, I felt much better than I have running the past few weeks, but Sunday I fell apart right from the start. My legs and knees just ached. Bad.
When I stopped at the house to re-fuel I decided to call it quits. I don’t necessarily believe in pushing through the pain if it’s not absolutely necessary (why risk pushing an ache or pain to an actual injury?!). I had planned on an hour on the elliptical to make up for the 6 miles I didn’t do, but after 30 minutes my legs and knees ached so badly I had to go off and lie with my legs up and stretch.
My goal the next few weeks is to really make yoga a priority. It’s unbelievable the difference I can feel in my running since I haven’t been practicing regularly!
