Tired Legs

The past week of running has been tough. My legs are fried. I have been getting out for my daily runs, but they have been very hard. Yesterday's run was extremely hot and humid, on top of the tired legs. I knew things were bad when an ATV rider asked if I needed a ride back to my car. He said I looked like I was "ready to drop." Not a big confidence builder.

I plan to run the Green Lakes Endurance 100K this cominhg weekend. This is a multiple loop course on single track. I am thinking I might skip running this week all together and just bike. If my legs feel this heavy and slow when I get to upstate New York for the race, it isn't going to be a good time.

I'll run today to finish off the week, and then take it how I feel for the rest of the week.


  1. Hey Laurel, I'll be at the GLER too. See you there!

  2. good luck on the 100K. The hot humid weather definitely doesn't help to have a good run. This past week has made me wonder if I still have it in me, but I know the humidity really plays into making it tough to run.. Hopefully you'll have perfect running weather in Syracuse! Good luck!
