After returning home from a run with a sore hamstring muscle, i had hoped on a 24 hour R&R of recovery and then i was hit with a overnight job assignment. I got up Monday at around 7am and then going running by 10am in 70 degree weather...taking care of things in the afternoon and watching the US Open Tourney which was rain delayed from Sunday to CBS at around 2pm only to get work of a job assignment from 8pm to 8am. I tried and didn't get a wink of sleep. So now, about 930am and will go then. But while at this assignment i took a phone call from the person who called in sick last night...calling in sick for tonight too. So now tonighte most likely 10pm to 8am. And i just realize i have their keys...got to go back b4 going to sleep.
Sometimes life does get in the way of running. It happens to virtually all runners. Put it in perspective - in a week or two you'll probably have forgotten about this streak of bad luck. And look at the bright side - it's an extra day for your hamstring to recover.
