Legs felt more rested after yesterday’s day off, but still had some cobwebs. Did a slow and easy 8 miles to the park and back to clear them out a little. A beautiful sunny morning, in the low 60’s. I think the legs will be loose enough to have a good 5k Sunday morning, will take it easy on them the rest of the day to continue recovering from early in the week.
The new shoes made the run feel light and easy, even with semi-sore legs, as I took an enjoyable lap around the park along with a throng of runners, runners of all sizes, shapes, and speed, and they were all beautiful – all runners are beautiful when they’re running – while a few slower and ‘novice’ runners seemed perhaps embarrassed about being ‘slower’ or ‘larger’ than ‘normal,’ I hope they weren’t because they were beautiful to me.
