I need some rest

Okay, so no snow tomorrow, but we're expecting LOTS of rain. So I ran again today. The run was harder than it needed to be. That's because I could have used a rest day after the 5miler. Mind you, I ran yesterday around 1pm, then again today at 7:20am. So, yeah, definitely not enough rest time there.

Miles 1 and 2 were fine. It didn't take me long to warm up. Potty break in mile 3. I felt a little weird after the break. I wasn't exactly dizzy, but I'm thinking I was lightheaded. Stopped at the car for a water break in mile 4. In mile 5, I started to feel soreness in the bone below my right knee (head of the fibula). I've had that before, but only after a run. But I'm always good to go after a day of rest. Mile 6 was a blur. Finally mile 7, I couldn't wait for the run to be over. I finished the last mile on the path around the pond.

So now that I'm done, both fibula heads are sore. I think I'll do some yoga later. But I need to rest first. No runs til Tuesday.

Christy, great job on the run! You one upped me today because I only had the energy to swim. I'm hoping for 6 tomorrow--on the treadmill again because the weather here has turned UGLY!

Congratulations on your perseverence! I just started running a month ago, and still can only run 1:30 minutes at a time. Your experience is very encouraging. Keep up the good work and take care of that knee. (BTW I found your blog thru KR).
