And on the fifth day...

Either my muscles are protesting from running five days in a row, or the four (highly watered-down!) vodka tonics I had last night screwed with my constitution, because I could barely make it to 2 km today before I had to stop running. Oh, there's a third possibility: Sprite enticing me to run the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (well, just the quarter, 10 km), which I declined, but maybe the stress of thinking about it kept me from running well. But I take comfort in the fact that I did 4 km yesterday, no problem.

It'll be at least three days before I run again (tomorrow: kickfit; Tuesday: Pilates). By then, muscles should've rested somewhat and I can find out if this week's spurt was just a fluke.

In home news, The Other D&D Game has started up in our flat again. Hence I went running.

Agagooga --- I don't play D&D. The Boys do.

calm one --- Don't worry, I'm sure this fitness kick won't last. It never does, and then I'll lapse into veritable couch potatohood, ice cream, iced tea and all.

it's the alcohol. i can't run on it either. it seems our bodies are made to run on specific carbs. also at our age(!) we need a bit more recovery time in between runs, so doing it every day for 5 days is a bit much. i'm trying to maintain a twice-a-week routine for conditioning, but if you want the possibility of running 10km 3-4 times a week is still OK.

Boko --- running that many times a week? Would kill my knees asap, according to both Terz and Casey.
