Homicide at the Gym...DOA

After work yesterday, I headed over to the gym, for my Monday night run and ripped class. I started out the night with 5 miles of sprints. I did pretty well and kept the pace up. I'm pretty proud of myself! Then, little did I know, there was going to be a homicide at the gym...my muscles were pronounced DOA. So many weights and squats and lunges, my entire body is completely dead in my ripped class.

I may be smiling, but I'm completely numb to the (good) pain that is my body. This made for an interesting 4 mile run this morning. It was a lot more than difficult, but it got done. I logged the miles. They weren't bad miles, but the weren't great miles. They were miles. I like to run like this to teach my body to run on fatigue. It's a good lesson. It's not like my body will be feeling great my entire 13.1 miles (in less than 2 weeks).

What songs are getting you through your last long runs of this training cycle? I'm loving anything by Sublime and System of a Down right now


  1. kudos to you for still getting in your run this morning, even though your muscles were so dead. lol

  2. Running tired will definitely make you stronger - just watch that fine line between training and overdoing it!

  3. I think it's good practice to run on tired legs every once in a while--just not all the time!
