Hiroko and I attended the Fleet Feet Social Run, and we did the same 4 mile course that I ran last week. However, this time, I was hurting from the two-a-day that I had done on Wednesday. I thought that I would get loose once I got warmed up, but in a work, NAAAAAA! The first two miles were all right. I was doing 9 minute miles, which is just a touch slower than my normal pace, but the third mile was real . . real bad. I was able to keep my pace up, but I was hurting and knew that I was going to have to walk part of the fourth mile. Hiro and the other lady, who ran with us blew right by me as I dropped off at the three mile mark. Mile four: just blew chunks, I ran walk all the way in. At one point, Hiro even stopped and started coming back to see it I was alright before I waved her on. My legs were just tight, sore, and felt like tree trunks. I kept telling myself that if I walked just a few seconds more then I would be able to run again. Each time I started running, I knew that I just didn't have the heart for it. No matter how much I tried to gut it out. I would end up dropping back down to a walk.
Honestly, it was a touch humiliating after I took off and left the group the week before because I wanted to
