Encouraged by my DC runs, I set out on a 10 mile run with C. I felt great setting out. We set a medium fast pace going out, and settled in at a sub 9 minute mile. My heart rate was fine, it all felt smooth, until, on the way down the backside of the Williamsburg bridge, a muscle on the inside of my right thigh cramped hard . . . The same muscle cramped at the end of the last run in DC, but I was able to finish off the run. This time it hurt more, and I had a lot farther to go to get home. Grumble, grumble. I hobbled to our Gatorade stop hydrated, stretched, and tried to head out again. No dice. Oh well. Happily, there was a Citibike stand nearby, so I sent C on his way and rode home. It was frustrating, but I'm not super worried. The cramp is frustrating, but again, it's in the big part of a large muscle, and will heal. Oy!!
