Today’s 14 miles finished off this long weekend’s nice series of runs (14(Fri)-19(Sat)-12(Sun)-14(today)). The body and especially the quads were sore, the effects Saturday’s run settling in. But the legs loosened up during the run and the second half was probably slightly under 8 minute mile pace. The temps were in the mid 20’s – so not too cold – but after this weekend’s thaw, had to be careful of the ubiquitous ice patches.
But feeling really good right now. The run felt very much in control. I don’t know what the rest of the week looks like, but feeling optimistic about it and the rest of the winter season, which should carry over to when the racing starts.
