learning to race happy

wednesday

10 easy miles again around town and partly in the park.  Feeling some recovery from this past weekend’s distance.  Plan on adding a tempo or fartlek along with some more increased distance again the rest of the week.  Besides rest and recovery, I find that easy distance runs like today’s have other race benefits.  That relaxed feeling resembles being ‘in the zone’ during a good race.  You have to know how to race with and get accustomed to that feeling as well as with pain; and that can be learned and refined during an easy run like today’s.
