Normally I don't run the day after a long run. My legs are tired and mentally it's not something I can handle nor want to handle. Today happened to be a rainy day in Chicago and I got lost in non-work related computer tasks so I didn't make it to the gym at a reasonable time. Finally the rain stopped as I was changing into my workout clothes. I decided it would be a heck of a lot easier to run from house than drive to the gym. The plan was an easy 3 without the garmy. I ended up running around 4 without garmy. My legs felt light and loose from the beginning. It felt great being out in the early evening on the lakefront. There is something about running at night in the city - I absolutely love it.
The rest of the week runs may be a bit tricky as I have 3 work visits in 3 days in 3 different cities. We will see how tired I end up being - maybe there is another night run in me yet this week.
