Today I ran my first 10-minute mile in several years. Then I had to turn around and come back. I totally maxed out--almost puked. I'd taken some ibuprofen earlier to help with soreness, but I didn't take it early enough. :( I've felt like crap ever since the run, but there were two good things that happened--aside from completing that first mile--my max HR was about 192, down at least 10 from the last time, so all this exercise is paying off. Also, my shins and calves didn't start bothering me AT ALL until the very end, and then only a little. :~)
Now I just need to get off the computer and go to bed...and eat some more, getting hungry, mmmm.
