I ran last night.
I had not run since Dec. 24 - Christmas Eve. It showed.
More to the point, it hurt. I cannot wait that long between runs. My legs don't work well together, so I've trained them to cooperate, and it seems in the time between Christmas Eve and now, they forgot. My bum knee all but told me to fuck off, and my right knee - the "good" side - didn't appreciate the unexpected pressure of having to carry the full load.
So my legs are sore today, and I'm cranky because of it, and the two miles I ran/walked last night pretty much sucked to the extreme.
But I did it.
