Recovery Run

by - Monday, April 07, 2008

First off, thanks to everyone for the comments about Saturday's long run. You are all right. I got through it and that's the important part.

This morning was a 45-minute recovery run. I warmed up for five minutes at 5 mph then turned it up to 5.5 for a few minutes. My legs started to feel heavy so I knocked the speed back down to 5.2 or 5.3. I bounced back and forth between the latter two speeds for most of the remaining time.

Nothing really noteworthy to report. The run went fine. It wasn't anything special, but it wasn't bad either.

The only thing that was crappy was that I ran out of time and didn't get to stretch as well as I would have liked to at the end. I've also been nursing a scratchy throat and a stuffy nose for the past few days. I'm hoping to kick it soon.
