The easy 3-miler that wasn't

I was supposed to do an easy 3-miler on Tuesday. This did not happen, mainly because the oppressive heat and humidity of the east coast summer returned with a vengeance. The day was sticky and hot, and I thought it best to not die on my run.

However, I did run my 3-miles yesterday, and it was painful. How is it that just last week I was thinking that 5 miles is a piece of cake, but this week I could barely manage 3? My legs were leaden, my calves were cramping, my hip was singing with IT band related pain. All this added up to a run that had more walk breaks than it should have.

But it's done, and there are more and better runs on the horizon.
