Took over a week to fully recover from climbing
but it’s done. Recovering from over-exertion is taking longer and longer it seems. Until today I hadn’t run what I thought to be a decent workout since the 5 mile race on August 15th. Mt. Katahdin
Work is stressful and is taking a lot of energy – leaving little for anything else. So I was glad to have three days off and I rested up a storm. Lots of reading and napping and with the heat breaking I’m feeling much better.
Ran a nice 13 mile run in cool weather with Mike on Sunday. Easy pace but the legs were still a little sore by the end. Good to have Mike back from his travels. Perhaps he’ll settle down now. Of course, he’s scaring me with a lot of rot talk about his fitness level. I had to take him to task. You’d think he’d just had surgery or something.
Monday I slept in and got caught up with the hectic schedule of reading and napping.
And this morning I was ready for a nice workout. Long sleeve temperatures and very little wind made for a nice progression run. Did 10 miles @ 6:22 pace (last in 5:48) feeling very good throughout. Then I jogged another three around town looking for Eric to see if he was about. I didn’t find him though. Finished with some striders and drills. Just what I needed to lift my spirits.
