Coming off yesterday's great workout, I had planned a simple 6 miler and some sprints/power skips at the end for some form work. However, when I got the old, rickety body out there on my run, I noticed some achy joints. My knees and my ankles both seem a little cranky. I wouldn't characterize it as anything more than soreness from yesterday and some dehydration probably, but I am not taking any chances or overdoing it. Consequently, I kept it simple with the run only, no add ons at the end.
I ran 6 miles and kept the pace decent, but doable. A 7:50/mile pace finished me up in about 47 minutes for 6 miles. A couple lighter days ahead this week, and I will end with a tempo run or hill workout on Friday.
