I ran yesterday

So after the 5k a while back I was severely disappointed in my ability to run.  I knew I had just gave blood a few days before, but I didn't think it would have that big of an effect on me.  It did.  It was hard and my heart rate stayed in the 190s anytime I ran/jogged.  I knew I hadn't ran in a while, but I didn't think I was in that bad of shape.

Yesterday proved to be different.  I ran and my heart rate was right where it had been before I quit running.  I can't say that I am right with where I was, but I can say that I can certainly run more than 3 minutes at a time like I was when I started running last time. I made it my usual loop in just about the same time as I previously had, granted my legs were well rested so that really helped. 

Anyway, I ran.  It felt good, but I am sore today.  I am going to try just doing 3 runs this week to give my legs a chance to catch back up before I really make them work again. 

Thanks for reading!
