Today was a mixed bag as far as the weather was concerned, in the morning it was raining and in the 50’s, this afternoon partly sunny and 60’s, so it was interesting. I didn’t really plan on running twice today, but it was the way it worked out.
I did my morning run as planned, 6.0 miles at around 8:30 pace (actually 8:35), so I was pretty happy, but I have been having some problems with my right abductor muscle or a tendon in that area, it just isn’t responding well to just running on it. When I try to stretch out my stride very much, it starts to bother a little.
Then I had to drop the Toyota off at M&A to have it looked over, to see what work needs to be done over the next few months. So I ran home from there and just went really slow, my abductor was bothering a little more. Probably didn’t really need the second run .
I ran both runs in my Instincts and felt pretty good on the first run, but noticed that my left foot tends to slap the ground when I ran in them today? Not sure what that means, but I know it is normal for me to do this in these shoes. Going to have to look at my form more to see what is going on.
I was happy with this morning’s run, but felt tired and slow this afternoon. Maybe I will take a couple of days off to give it a chance to heal a little.
