This was my favorite kind of day!
A double day!
It is so great when the stars align and I get to be outside in the morning to see the day start. Later I am back out here after work watching the sun set as I enjoy the local scenery!
I put in my usual maintenance 3.5 morning miles with the littest. My legs are still feeling heavy since the race. Do you all deal with that? How long does it linger for you? Do you do anything to overcome the feeling? I plan to get in a few run without littlest and with the biking sherpa over the next few days to help "reset" my base pace again.
Aside from the slow pace and heavy legs it felt great to simply be back at it while I decide what I can do next as far as races go.
The hurtle. Childcare while I race since hubbs works some crazy hours. But I will figure it out soon.
After work I put on my GREEN and went out for a hilly 6.5 miles. It was wonderful to run in the daylight! My legs were still somewhat leaden but I pushed through and maintained a decent pace.
Run Like a Mother (who by the way wrote a GREAT book) had a post the other day about the number of footfalls per minute. I counted mine. Ugh! With the jogger only 73! I am to be around 80+. I am going to have to work on that. Did you know that tidbit? All these years of running and I am still learning from everyone in bloggy land. Thanks for the education.
