My legs have felt like lead since running 9 on Monday and it dawned on me as I lay away at 3am this morning that it might be lactic acid buildup. When they felt so heavy right before my half marathon in March I got a massage and the therapist told me that's what lactic acid does/feels like. So I have an appointment at 4:30 and I hope it works. I've been mentally off this week, too. Sometimes if the mind is off but the body is good I can push through and vice versa, but not when both are off!
On another note, I was prepared for my speed workout with run club yesterday when I got to childcare and they told me we can't use childcare to go to run club anymore. I get it because we leave the building (and run as far as 3 miles from the gym before turning back) but still... an email would have been nice so I didn't plan my runs this week around that option.
