musculus quadriceps femoris dolor

Lunch time! It was a beautiful afternoon. The sun brightly shining through clear blue skies. Temperature was around 58 degrees F. I jog from the office to the local track for a nice 10 minute warm-up. Once on the track I continued running but picked up the pace and tried to average a 6:24 pace for a 5 mile tempo run but after the first mile I was 10 seconds behind. Somewhere between 2 and 4 miles my time slipped down another 20 seconds and after 5 miles instead of finishing with a time of 32:00 I had 32:34 on my watch. I realized my legs and in particular my quads were still sore from the 10 mile race from this past weekend. Instead of going to the track Tuesday I just ran 5 easy miles in the park. I thought that would be enough to allow the legs some rest but I guess that was not enough.
I am looking forward to getting a 14 or 15 mile run this weekend while up in Maine for my son's wedding.
Have a great and safe weekend.
Swim, Bike, then Run.

Hope you have/had a good time at the wedding. Someday I hope to do the LobsterMan Triathlon in Freeport. An ad they used to run showed a real lobster appearing to do freestyle, but the water was yellow - like butter... ;)

I think they make a cream for whatever that latin term that you titled this post is?

erm... I totally did not understand the title. Will interprete it as sore legs. :)

Run well and God Speed!

Latin for pain in the quads.
