43- long run, sore legs

Good evening!

Sleeping 12 hours felt sooo good last night.  I woke up feeling much better/more well rested.  This morning, I did another 17 mile run.  It went really well for the first 12 miles.  I ran straight against the wind for the first 7, then cruised for the next 5.  But, for some reason I totally hit a wall after 12.  My legs suddenly felt so tired and my whole body hurt- totally weird.  It was warm out and I was sweating alot so I'm not sure if it was that or glycogen depletion (I don't eat or drink anything on my runs) but it was depressing cuz it killed my overall pace.  The rest of the day my legs have been tired.  Much more so than my 17 miler last week.  Boo.  I'm not going to let it bother me too much because my running has been really decent this week and I'm just going to chalk it up to coming at the end of a long week.  Overall, 17 miles at 8:50 pace isn't great, but it is in the books.  I really got to work on my fueling too overall- not sure what is going on with my hunger or lack there of but I'm going to have to sort that out too.

Speaking of which, it is time for fro yo!  Sunday dinner = frozen yogurt.  Always.

Peace out- have a good start to the week!
