That's what I did this morning. I can't remember the last time I ran just 5 miles - must've been just after Boston. Anyway, that's what the schedule called for and it felt swell, warm-soup-air and all.
I think it's kind of funny when a plan (or a week, or whatever) starts out with recovery or a day off or something. It seems designed to make you feel good whether or not you actually do anything - you can say "there, I did it, day 1 of the Plan" when what you really did was not do anything.
Anyway, tomorrow is 8 with strides, which is a little more like something.

"I can't remember the last time I ran just 5 miles - must've been just after Boston."
I, too ran 5 miles after a marathon once. Not for time. Not even for training. But for me.
I've been down the recovery road myself. I've done strides. As Paula or Catherine or Geb might say one day, I've done it all.
Ask yourself: Have you done it all?
Maybe I'm a dreamer. I think there's a little of that in all of us. Is that bad? No.
Please come back to the forum. It needs you the same way I need it. You don't have to post 10 times a day or even five. Three, evenly spaced and with proper edits, will suffice.
Thank you. And let's stay on topic.
