Just got back from a quick 5 mile recovery run (44:08 or 8:49/mile for anyone keeping score), I feel good mentally and it was a nice run. It felt very short, which I suppose is a side effect of doing these crazy long runs. The only downside is that my legs feel kind of out of it and my left knee felt achy. I am a little bit concerned about that and I absolutely don’t want to get sidelined with an injury, so I’m going to make an effort to really take it easy this week. So, I’ll be resting when I feel like resting, running slower than I can run and maybe even forcing myself to do some cross training. I don’t have a gym membership right now, so I don’t have an elliptical machine or exercise bike to use, but I’ll figure something out.
So, I’m not sure if I’m going to race that 5k on Saturday or not, but I will be running 20 miles on Sunday. So BRING IT ON.
Also, check out my new running swag!:
A copy of Matt Fitzgerald’s new book Racing Weight: How to Get Lean for Peak Performance and a new pair of Tifosi Dea T – 1710 sunglasses. Wicked! I also got a 26.2 magnet for my car, but I’ll have to photograph that later. I haven’t read the book yet, but I will post a review after I do. I did, however, test out the sunglasses today on my run.They are awesome, I highly recommend them! A really nice change from going blind from all the snow/sun reflections and they are super comfortable to run in. I don’t have any pictures of me wearing them, so you’re spared from seeing my face. Shucks.
Well, that’s all I’ve got for today.test Filed under Uncategorized | Comments (4)
