Needed to run 10, ran 3

Woke up early this morning to do a 10 mile training run. Was feeling good when I started, legs were a bit sore, but they have been sore for the last week. So it was expected.

As the run progressed my legs started to feel heavy. I started to feel a bit of pain in my lower left leg. By mile 3 the pain was unbearable. I could not run any longer. I stopped.

I was very disappointed that I could not finish my run. But it was best that I stopped. I didn’t want to injury myself more. The rest of the day was spent icing my sore legs.

Let’s hope that my legs are recovered by the middle of the week, so I can try to get the 10 mile training run in before the half marathon on Saturday.

I’m giving away a pair of Brooks Running Shorts!

I recently ordered a pair of men’s 5″ Brooks Running shorts. However, by error they sent me a pair of women’s 5″ running shorts. I asked if I should send the shorts back, but they said I could keep them.

I’ve decided to give them away to my 500th twitter follower! Follow me @runwithwes
