Today’s Run

I definitely have a cold or something. Right now, it’s mild enough that it’s not keeping me from my normal activities, but it’s slowing me down. I waited until all the schools were in session this morning, headed out at 10:00am, and ran a little over 5 miles. My speed and cadence were definitely below average for a 5-mile run, but most of the run felt fine (at one point, I briefly considered going 6.5 miles, which I probably would have regretted). When I finished, I felt wiped out, which is definitely not usually the case. The good news is, my right hamstring is continuing to improve. There’s still a little bit of minor discomfort, but slow jogging didn’t bother it at all, and faster running bothered it less than it did two days ago.
