03/21/2017 Yesterday's 6 miler, sore

Coming off the race Sunday and the hard 6 miler on Monday, I was quite sore yesterday.  It wasn't anything more that regular soreness, but I didn't want to build to much more on top of that.  Overuse injuries happen all the time.  I decided to switch up from the planned 8 miles down to a slower, more comfortable 6 miles.  I ran the same route as the day before, just this time I did it in 48+ minutes, not the 46 minutes from Monday.  

It was definitely the right call to switch up.  The legs are happier now, plus I can simply run my 8 miler today, switching yesterday and today like I had to do a few times in January and February because of weather.  

I will say, yesterday's 6 miler was in the sun and low 50's, nice weather.  Today, my F-ing 8 miler will now be done in the 30's with a wind chill down in the low 20's or teens.  I need warm weather.
