So I went out for a two mile run last night. Had to stop and walk after one hill and could not make it all the way up another. Probably walked 200 yards in all. I just ran out of gas. My legs felt tired from the get go. So tonight I will rest them a bit. I will head to the gym and I will ride the bike but at a more leisurely pace. I will also hit the weights and do the sit ups.
Do any of you runners out there struggle with dead legs? I thought early in the day that they felt strong, but once I started my run they just started talking back and telling me I was nuts.
