I Finished my first Tempo Week and can’t believe I only have two weeks until my Marathon. Monday was a nice 5 mile run but my legs were still a bit stiff from the 20 miles the Saturday before and my knees were too.
I was not feeling well on Wednesday so I skipped running which was probably for the best anyway. Thursday I was real busy so I skipped running that day too. I felt good for my 12 miles today though. I actually slept in and started around 11:00. Everything felt pretty good. I have a little soreness on my right side but it’s hard to isolate it. It could be ITB, sciatic, or glute. Maybe all three. My knees felt really good until about mile 8 and then started to get sore. I had to walk a bit at mile 11. I know I didn’t hydrate enough so that may be part of the problem. I have some Ideas that might help, I’ll let you know haw it goes.
