Had to leave early for work, so I got up at 5:25 and headed out on a run. A bit cold, 34F with a slight breeze. Wore a new lightweight hoodie and it worked pretty well. I'm still thinking my legs hurting may have a nutrition aspect, but the main reason I've determined is simply not running much. I haven't quite hit 200 miles for the year, and it's been 4 months. So not even 50 miles per month, which isn't going to get it done for staying in shape. Mentally I think I've been running more than I have, so naturally I should be at the paces and distances I've been running the past 8 years. Nope, I need a steady rebuild just like my first marathon. I think I'll look at Hal's novice 1 course again and start building up that way. Hopefully problem will be solved.

Did 2 miles on the TM, threw in a couple fast reps to get my legs moving, maybe I've just been moving too slow?
