Training Log - Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Today, I decided to go for a quick 6 miler during my son's soccer practice. I took off from Palmer Park around 6:30PM to run a fairly flat 6 mile loop on the nearby roads. Traffic was heavy and I was glad I was wearing one of the almost fluorescent yellow tech shirts I received at a recent running event. Visibility is key when you have to run into traffic on country roads without sidewalks.

For some reason, I really felt deflated just 2 miles in and I ended up having to walk for about 5 minutes. I don't recall that happening to me at all over the past year. I guess it was a case of delayed muscle fatigue of some sort? Anyway, after a brief walk break I was able to pick it back up and continue on to finish the loop and complete the 6 miles. It certainly helped that the sun went down during my run and that the temps dropped as soon as that happened. I just do better in cooler temps. The pace wasn't pretty but I got some mileage in anyway.
