Nice Recovery...Just As It Should Be

Well that's what Jason keeps telling me. I get a little nuts on the recovery runs because it's hard to slow down. It's important I realize, but going from an 8:45 pace to a 10min pace is tough. But we did it this morning, coming in for 4 miles at 39:56. I did love this run because there isn't anything to comment about it. Just ran, felt good, felt strong, felt easy. No leg pains....just running.

I have always thought that running these recovery runs at a proper pace has made all the other runs of the week easier. It's a shakedown run, get's the crappiness out the legs and gets them ready to run long or far or whatever. Something to keep in mind for furture recovery days.

Tomorrow 10 miles.

I've become much more of a fan of the recovery run in my old age. It really does help the body deal with the tougher runs.
