First, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who commented on the last post and discussed their own crazy neighbors...definitely a few that made me laugh in there!
This morning, I couldn't get myself out of bed. I slept in longer than usual hitting the snooze button and skipped my morning workout (non-run). Once I finally got up, I still felt like crap. My legs are sore and I felt like I was going to puke.
So, if you've been following along, you might be saying to yourself, isn't this girl planning on trying to run a marathon in less than 2 weeks? Why in the world would it have been a tough weekend, it should be getting easier at this point.
The reason: Yard Work.
Yep, managed the shorter scheduled 12 miler with no problems (other than it taking me a while to feel warmed up and in the proper zone for a long run) and ended up with a speedy (for me) 4 miles on Sunday. Felt fine, no issues. Then it was time to tackle our pitiful, neglected yard that was full of weeds, dead annuals that needed pulled and a garden to wrap up for the season.
I feel fine now but still have some sore muscles but I know it's from the yard work and I know I'll feel fine tomorrow. It's funny to feel the difference in using some muscles in a different way...guess that was some good cross-training for the weekend. Oh, and the yard? While it looks much better, it still looks kind of pathetic.
