I got out for a run after work today, and did 8 miles. It was about the same weather wise, temps in the low 50's, and overcast, with not much wind. That's 2 days in a row, in shorts! Just think, daylight savings time is only a little over a week away!
I probably should have not run as long, since my lungs were killing me afterwards.
I can't friggin stand coughing, and it seems like that is all I do. I figured I'd run the cough out of my system. I guess it doesn't work that way. I had that burning feeling in the lungs afterwards, and it took a little while for it to go away. Guess I should know better than to push it when I'm not 100%.
I did a longer loop, similar to Wednesday's Mercer County Park loop. For as nice as the weather was, I only passed one other runner. I kept a nice even pace, and like yesterday, I wanted to end with negative splits.
For as crappy as I felt the past few days, I think the worst is behind me.
I'll take off Friday, and if I feel better, I will hit the trails Saturday morning with the group.
8 miles (1:10:18 8:47avg.)
