Today was a really nice day, and getting out for a workout was no problem at all! I did the warm-up run without a creak to be heard in my muscles; I felt like I was fully recovered from Monday night’s speed session. Then I did the push ups, and mountain climbers, and I was so wiped out it wasn’t funny! Running the 2 miles back was really challenging, and that’s when my muscles started to express their lingering fatigue. I felt some stiffness in my right calf, and some stiffness in the tips of my medial quads, right down at the bottom of the knee. Nothing was sore, but once I had used up all of my glycogen stores with the core workout, the stiffness started to show in my legs. It’s a great way to test your recovery!
