goal race: Buffalo Marathon 5/29
Steady rain was forecasted for most of the day with a narrow window of dryness this morning, so headed out for an early one and got in a not-so-wet 11 mile run before 11 am. It was a ‘dry run’ of another sort maybe simulating the fatigue of the later miles of a marathon. Having worked very early this morning at the store receiving and lugging around heavy cases of produce and not fully recovered from yesterday’s long run, today’s ‘easy’ paced run was anything but easy. Wasn’t mentally ready for the run, more inclined to be a couch potato post-work, and this translated to a seemingly neverending run on life-less legs. Still, did not hit the wall and glad to accomplish a solid run before the heavy rains arrived.
