Hi Johnny, KS, and TW


My legs aren't really sore, but I am paying for not doing any downhill running for 3 months this winter.  Tonight could have been one of the slowest painful runs I have done.

Those huge downhills at last weekends race  fried my quads and my knees and legs ached with every stride especially on the downhills.  I started out about 9 minute pace and worked my way down

as I got loosened up.  Usually after a half hour the endorphins kick in but my legs ached more the farther I ran.  My ambition was to do three 5 mile loops, but I knew after a few minutes that wasn't going to happen.  I ran the first lap in 42:30 and the second lap in 38:30 and decided that was enough pain for one day.  10 miles total in 81:00.


I don't think there is any way I can run more than two days a week doing these longer trail races.  It is taking my legs too long to recover.  On the shorter ones, I may be able to sneak in another run that week.
