The 28th of last month was the last time that I ran long. 10 miles on that day. Yesterday I ran 10 miles, again, but suffered.
Miles 1-6. Not bad. Ran approx 0:8:30’s. Was happy about that.
Miles 6-7 Noticed that my left hamstring and IT Band and were starting to hurt, just a bit.
Miles 7-10 Horrible. Too hot. Haven’t been drinking enough water.
Mile 10 Called Wendy for a pickup. Haven’t quit a training run in quite a while.
This was a tough run for my confidence. It told me that I didn’t drink enough and also that I can’t just take long Saturdays off and then expect to rebound.
Also my core strength is beginning to be more of an issue. I haven’t done core since my scooter wreck on May 31st. That is unacceptable. I need this to be a part of my daily (3 days a week?) routine. Otherwise I think that my IT Band and other important things will become an issue.
