Wow, my muscles are sore! It might not have been all that smart to ski so long and so hard on my first outing of the year. But, it kind of feels good to be sore. When I think back to when I used to run at a more competitive level, I was sore all the time! I remember I used to come home from Wednesday night track workouts and have a hard time walking from the car to the house. Then I'd wake up during the night over and over again with my legs cramping up. Ahhhh, those were the days.
I really took it easy today. It was too windy and cold to run outside comfortably so I went with the treadmill. I really didn't want the neighbors seeing me run as slow as I needed to run today anyway, so the treadmill was a good choice.
I need to take the time to do a good stretch and self massage tonight so I can do my marathon pace running tomorrow without too much pain.
