Week's Summary

I'll come straight out and say last week's half marathon wiped me out.  The downhill nature of the course took a massive toll on my quads and I had zero strength to do much more than do easy runs this week.  I didn't even have strength to do any final strides.

I was really worried about my half marathon on Friday night on account that I had no oomph whatsoever.  I felt like I had run a full marathon, instead of just a half marathon (which normally takes me about a day to recover from).  I did wind up paying a price in terms of performance on Friday's race but I am still glad I got out and had some fun.

I hope to be able to squeeze in some quality miles this week.
