Today’s run was simply to get a good recovery run in after yesterday’s long run. I felt pretty good and really had to work to slow down, instead of just running. I wanted to get over 4.0 miles in and stay around a 9:00 minute pace.
I almost slowed down to the 9:00 minute pace that last mile, but I felt strong the entire run and ran with the brakes on the whole way!
It feels good to be able to run 13.2 miles and still feel good the next day :-).
Hopefully, over the course of the week all those little aches and pains that have accumulated have a chance to go away and next Saturday and Sunday when I am in Pennsylvania, I am able to have fun and run well.
