creeping touch of fall
This morning we awoke to temps in the low 70s and dewpoint in the 60s, yikes almighty. I had 11 recovery miles to run, and had planned a double, but I decided to take advantage of the lovely weather and do the whole 11 at once. I couldn't quite stick to poky recovery pace, and after 8 miles I had barely broken a sweat. Did I mention this is lovely? It's lovely.
Brief aside about "recovery" runs - I think of them not as "runs that help you to recover" (because they are so slow, I guess) but "runs that you do while you are recovering." Meaning they won't hurt your recovery because they are so slow. I wonder if this is an ok interpretation.
I have finished the 13th week of Pfitzinger, and there are 2 more weeks of hard training and 3 of taper. This week I ran a bit over 84 miles. Next week I get a little break (73 miles) leading up to a 20K race on Sunday. Because the race is way south of here, I don't expect such nice weather (even if it holds thru next week up here), but I hope I can run a good time anyway.
