The other day I decided to go out for a run. I was debating on taking a day off as I ran 16 miles in the previous two days. But it was the first of this month and I wanted to get out there and get off to a good start for July.
Once I arrived home from work, I completed a lot of tasks, I needed to complete around the house, while my wife got the younger kids ready for bed. I then took the oldest with me to the grocery store to pick up a watermelon. Finally, I was ready to go.
My legs felt tired, but it was a good tired. I felt like I was going faster as the run went on. It felt great. I finished strong. This was important to me as I wanted to see how I can handle running on tired legs to prepare for a half or full marathon in the future.
