    quads are tight from yesterday's new strength routine - added resistance machines to work quads, hamstrings, hips. I'm only running every other day, and today is my run day. It is about 43 - 45 and steady rain. I can 1) go to the gym and use the treadmill Dead 2) drive to the track and run on an even surface 3) just run my regular planned route - asphalt/packed dirt - total elevation about 1200

        I'd just go out on your planned route and play it by ear. Start slow and get a good warm up. If things stretch out, great, if not, then either stay slow or cut the run short. Then again, I lift regularly and enjoy running in the rain. 43-45 degrees doesn't count as too cold for rain yet, although it is getting there...

          I vote for track. I need to do something with my quads... shoot I need to just get out and run Big grin

            I'm sure you're home, safe sound and dry by now but my vote is for the track. It's a great surface, and it's easy to cut your run short if things don't go as planned. Hope your run went well, and you are on the mend.

              I voted for the track to and I believe that is where she ended up to. Hope to hear she had a good run!

                Thanks guys! I'm trying very hard not to stress over every little pain I have - last injury really shook me up. Sometimes hard to tell if I'm just being a wimp. The track went great - I was the only one there. I love running in the rain! I think we need to invent running chaps - like just the front of your legs need protection since the backside always stays dry Big grin I think the quad stuff is a combo of the stepped up strength training and a new uphill route I ran Fri. In any case, lots of stretching today, and I'm glad I went out there. Thanks Smile

                  Nice run Cheryl!! I was actually thinking that it was a combination when I first heard about your sore quads. As they say no pain no gain Wink Enjoy your rest day tomorrow!!
