26 miles this week! Not so much. There was the 18 miler on the Zoar Valley Trail, which was 9 miles out and back. All road! It really beat my legs up. Friday was a rest day, and my calves really ached all day at work.
I worked all weekend. I was supposed to run both days before work. I did not run on Saturday, and my legs-the calves-were really still aching. I planned to run Sunday, but I woke up tired, and said the heck with it.
As a result, I felt really good on my Monday morning around the block loop. Sometimes you do have to just listen to your body and take down time.
I would like to have more miles in before The Ring, but I have to remember that The Ring is also just a very good training run for Uwharrie in October.
