Holy crap, my legs just felt like dead stumps of wood this morning. We were out pretty late last night at a baseball game - didnt get home till 10:30, and probably didnt get to bed till midnight. That is like the 4th night in a row that I got to bed late and still rolled out of bed at 5:00ish to run. So I give myself props for getting out of bed, but I really think I need a good nights sleep.
Started off my 8 miler and it was just slow and painful. About 2 miles in, the left earpiece on my headphones gave out and started giving me static and jumping in and out of the song. So i tore the wire in half and just used the right earpiece. I have another set at home that I'll find tonight.
Around mile 6, I dropped the shoes for a mile and ran barefoot. It felt okay but I had only wanted to do about 3/4 mile and did a mile and was feeling it in my feet and big toe at the end. On the upside, the last mile and a half when I put my shoes back on felt a little better.
Maybe I'm just tired, maybe it is all this humidity and heat we have had lately but my legs just didnt have it today. Here's hoping for a better 8 miler tomorrow.
