Recovery run

My legs felt a little "off" tonight.

Maybe they're still reeling from the river crossing during Saturday's race.

Either way, tonight's recovery run was a little uncomfortable at first. It did get better near the end.

Plus, it started raining again when I was out. Of course, it was NOTHING like Saturday's rain. This was a light, refreshing precipitation event. Not a torrential downpour.

I hope the legs start feeling a little more normal by Saturday. That's when I'm doing the 9 on the 9th Run, set up by the wonderful Nancy. This will be my farthest run to date, and I am excited! It should give me more confidence for the HM I will be doing in May.

But for today, the run was short and sweet. I hope Thursday's run will be a little longer.

Today's stats:
Distance: three miles
Time: 33:12
Pace: 11:04 minute/mile

After my two running tests this weekend, my legs felt like lead last night too! But, gritted it out and got it done :-)

Thanks! No one has called me wonderful today.

Remember how you felt after 8?? DAMN GOOD, if I remember correctly :D
