Is that lead in your pants...?

I love running with the AREC (A Running Experience Club). Running with a group puts my mind in a "race" mode where I don't actually run a race pace, but I definitely run faster and harder than I do when I run by myself. And it helps tons because two times a week I force myself not to be lazy. Lately, though, my legs have been feeling really heavy and I don't know why. Whenever I feel slow I think about how I ate the day before and usually not enough food is the culprit. However, sometimes my legs just feel like they're full of lactic acid from the word go and, well, shit sucks. This is the thing that makes me nervous about running the marathon in October. Gonna have to zero in on the problem soon.


  1. Hey, dude, I hear you about running with a group of people. It makes you run faster. I wouldnt worry right now if you have a bad run. You are going to hav some of those from time to time.

  2. Yeah, you're right. My body's probably in a recovery week. Gotta recharge the batteries once a month I guess.

  3. hey babe

    how about a fast 4th of july fire cracker 5k? no lead in your pants allowed
