#151: Muscle Memory
This past week my running was completely derailed by the untimely synchronicity of a vigilante spring cold and the exhaustion of state test proctoring. My weekday runs were replaced by weekday naps. While the naps were lovely in and of themselves, I worried about the lack of training with only two weeks to go until my next half marathon. But yesterday Erinn and I headed out together for a 7 miler, and I felt totally fine. One of the definite benefits of being a long distance runner for as long as I have been is muscle memory; my legs are accustomed to milage, and I can hit the road after a decently long time off and my body is none the wiser.
