Refreshing run today

The legs came through ok today after a creaky start. I am going to get that massage once I get a chance. Perhaps early next week.

As usual, the run started off at a snail's pace. I'm always surprised just how sore and creaky my poor legs are first thing in the morning. But after 1/2 mile or so they are tolerable and they gradually get better through the run until maybe the end. Today followed suit.

The plan for today was 12 with a 20 minute up tempo. I didn't get the 12 but that was a caution I took after the 20 minute tempo felt so good on the legs that I didn't want to bring them back to soreness by adding mileage. This should work out fine anyway as I'll still get 80 miles or so in this week.

I'd like to see the triple digits again as soon as I can handle it. But for the past 3 weeks I've been above 70 and that's a start.

Today: 8.48 miles 1:08:18 (8:04 pace / 145 HR)

8:15 pace last .48 miles.

Wx: Sunny and very gusty winds. Good for 1/2 of the loop, quite stressful the other.
