Another long (for me anyway) road run -- the second in 48 hours. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but rationalized it anyway.
Friday morning I was supposed to run around Como Lake (7 miles) with the neighborhood running group. For a number of reasons I didn't get out of bed early enough to do that, so I did an "empathy" run Friday after work instead. I sent email to the group to inform them that I was not a total slacker, and how it would have been more fun to run with the group. One of the group responded and said, "Great, we're doing 10 to 12 Sunday morning, want to join us?".
I responded and said I had to go to church. But I told my wife, gee it would fun to run with the group. To which she replied, "You don't have to go to church -- go run." Now I had no excuse. I knew I wasn't really ready for a 12 mile road run, especially after 7 on Friday evening, but I went anyway.
The run felt good, but as were getting close to home my legs were tired so I left the group (actually only two other people) and walked home. No pains during the run, but now, a couple hours later, I can feel my Achilles in both legs. I'll try to get on the bike tomorrow and start the recovery process. I need to be ready to prance like a deer next Saturday or toddp will leave me for the vultures in the Black River forest.
