Still recovering

Odd week allows me to run two recovery days in a row. Tomorrow we run "long resistance w/long variations". Sounds daunting.

Ok, I'm just reading the workout now as I type and it doesn't look too, too bad. The length of the workout is what will be tough I think. Here's what it says:

Step 1: 30 minutes even pace ~7:55/mi.
Step 2: 7k / 5k / 3k segments. Each at 6:20 per mile with 10 minute recovery in between at base pace above.
Step 3: Go home.

I can do that, I think. The toughest part will be hitting the MP pace. If I get scared and run too fast early, I'll falter later on in the workout.

I am glad for the two days recovery. The 21 miler on Sunday was tough following a really good training week. No good run goes unpunished, and a week of them is plain sinful. So I'm feeling it now.

I'm sure those fresh legs will be raring to go for that workout. Show it who's boss!

I know what you mean when you say 'still recovering'. It's such a subtle accumulation of tiredness that can suddenly creep up on you. How about a slight adjust with a really slow warmup before you start and make sure it's downhill with the wind behind you! Good luck!

Have a good one tomorrow...

I'm back on the ice, too. No fun, but we must carry on.

"No good run goes unpunished". Wise words indeed
