    Default NAD "Off" days of running

    I know quite a few of you are runners on here, and I have a question. My running partner and I headed out for a 5 mile today (the sun is shining it is a perfect day) and during the warm up I felt horrible. By the end of the run I was totally dogging it and feeling even worse, my shins and quads were killing me.

    So my question is this, do any of you guys ever have days were it is supposed to be a run day but for whatever reason you body is just not cooperating? If you do, what do you do about it?

    I have def had that. Seriously less than 1k into a run last summer, I just couldn't do it. We had a bad fire season and the air quality had been bad for a week or so and I think my body just wasn't able to recover from the previous run I did a few days before.

    Try again in a couple of days.

    And good for you, getting out there!

    I'd always advocate to sticking with what your body is telling you vs. sticking to a plan. This has become especially important/evident to me in the 9 months since I broke my hip. THe plan is much more fluid these days as I have to do what my body is allowing me to do ~ some days that is more, some days less, but I really let how I feel dictate what I end up doing. I usually opt into a yoga class on those off/down days HTH

    Thanks, it was really weird. I feel fine now, but that run just sucked.
