Running week of March 14-20

So this week I was determined to start off strong and build the mileage and get over 30 miles.  I started out great and though the weather wasn’t cooperating I still managed to put in some miles.  By mid-week, I was starting to have some dull pain and fatigue in my legs so before injury came about, I decided to take a rest day on Friday even though I was supposed to do 10 miles.  Well Saturday morning I still had that same general pain and opted for another rest day.  I continued to stretch and massage the legs and wear the compression sleeves to sleep on Saturday night.  Sunday morning, my legs felt great!  So I hit an 11 miler and slowed my pace down to actually enjoy the run.  I still had over 30 miles and I’m good with the results.
