I ran 5 miles tonight, in muggy weather, and feel good about my pacing. I ran a 8:07/mile pace, finishing in about 40:35 in total. I was looking to do some hill work early in the week, however, I have a weird feeling in my right hamstring and do not want to do anything to it. Luckily, I did not even feel it on the run.
I am pretty sure it all stems from my weekend warrior status in old man softball. The first game was this past Sunday. I do a lot of sprinting around the outfield and on the bases. Consequently, every once in awhile I feel a little twinge, back off a little, get settled in, and resume running and speed work.
I hope you enjoyed the post from earlier. I really feel it is a good way for people to get their nutritional intake headed in the direction they want. It's all about choices and commitment.
