I was really sceptical if I would be able to run today , as I had to lymph back yesterday. I ICE'ed it and rested the foot. Applied "MYOFLEX" before and I slept and calves were still stiff in morning. I even messaged buddies to see if they wanted to run hoping to bail out today. When I started it was totally different I blasted through the 1st phase to the hills. Lap time was 5.05,6.15,6:30 and no 10&1 it was all out flat running. Of course the lights helped out in between to get my breath back but it felt like I could do my PB in 5 today. It 3.5 to the hill site and it felt really good. I was supposed to 6 repeats at Riverdale. I knew this was lot stepper than Canoe place but bit shorter. Damn it was demoralizing just seeing it. I did 5 repeats and stopped my knees were burning like crazy. Heart though wanted to go one more round.
Way back was good too all while I was under 6:30 pace which was really great I could literally sprint, the hill made legs so heavy that running of flats felt like I was flying. :)
So all in all I understand why I was not able run yesterday, it was hydration and tempo run though it was slower than today irony ha. But water makes such a huge difference , I was running my tempo pace on way back form hills imagine that. It was fantastic hill run and feels good as I write this. I am sure soon the DOM's will set in and I will repent.
Here is how the route was.
