Today, eight days later, I went for a short run. Officially, my first day of base training starts next week, but I decided to get back out there today and at least do a little something.
The legs were quite sore from yesterday's lifting session (as expected), and this certainly was a factor during the run. I've gotta get used to this again - during the base phase I need to be prepared to drop the pace somewhat due to the two leg lifting sessions/week.
The HR was up about 7-beats/min probably due to the soreness, being overdressed for the temperature, and a slight drop in fitness.
Overall not too bad - good to lace up the "blood soaked" shoes once again. (I ordered a new pair that should be arriving by Thursday)
If all goes well tomorrow, I'm going to head to the gym to see if I can't figure out some way to get in some upper body lifting.
Sun, 2/8: 4-miles @ 6:55 pace. HR-162 (quite a bit higher than normal - need to monitor periodically to see if this is real or just due to being overdressed and sore)
