Tuesday - A Few Strides in the rain

Today was another day with rain, but after yesterdays run I have decided that unless it is flooding... I am running. My legs felt good after the interval work from Monday. I started feeling a little tightness in my right hamstring but I don't think it is anything some easy stretching can't fix. Need to give some serious thought to new shoes. The Nike 2:40s are starting to loose their spring. Will go for the same model if I can still find them.

Run Summary:

Started off about 8 minutes per mile and probably evened out a little faster than that. Shoes were still wet from yesterday's rain run and I've got a blister on my left big toe to prove it. Pace was very slow and easy and could have gone on forever but I forced myself to keep the 8 minute pace to help flush the legs from yesterday's 60 minutes. Probably hit just over 5.5 miles.

I ended up stretching for about 15 minutes after the run and took a few Advil for good measure.
