I arrived home from my business trip today exhausted but ready to get out there and do a light run. The weather in Boston compared to where I was in Memphis was downright cold and rainy but it was great to land and be in a familiar place. Despite my good intentions, I always have big dinners when traveling and while on some level it felt good to be eating such delicious food, it just does not agree with me as much and is not really worth it. I hit the pavement today feeling a bit heavier but for the most part, it was temporary. I kept the pace moderate and put more of the emphasis on just being out there. It was a drastic difference to how I felt just two days ago.
I have a race this weekend on Sunday so tomorrow will be a long run, followed by a day of light running, rest or swimming on Saturday and then the race. There is no goal for Sunday’s race other than to have fun. The last thing I need to do is race hard and screw up my healing achilles. I have a few friends running and will look forward to having a great time.
On my trip, I did read a few great running articles. I promise in my next post, I will share them with you so you can partake in them.
