Recovery runs
This past weekend was pretty quiet. Just a great chance to relax and catch up on some things around the apartment.


I had a fantastic run on Thursday. Went out with the intention of just doing a regular four mile run. I tried a new route, so the scenery was different and my mind was kept busy with deciding on which turns to make. That's why I love the Forerunner. I can just keep running until I hit the distance I want to do - no need to measure it out beforehand. Once or twice I've ended up farther from home at the end than I intended. But it does keep it interesting. I felt really good, so I just kept running at a comfortable speed. I finished the four miles in 37:40 for a 9:25/mile pace. Wow - I'm back!! Finally getting close to the level I was at pre-op. I will be so happy if I can do the four mile race on Saturday at that pace.


Friday was an intentional rest day. The office closed early for the holiday so I was able to run some errands and be ready for the weekend. Unfortunately, Saturday started as an unintentional rest day. When I took Shannon for a walk at 6:30am it wasn't raining but threatening and the wind gusts were at about 40mph with the arrival of what was left of Ernesto. So I decided to pass on the morning run with the Striders and go back to bed. The weather was somewhat better later that morning, but I had already taken my mind out of a run.


Sunday morning dawned gorgeous after the torrential downpours that passed through Saturday afternoon and evening. I got to the park as the long run group was leaving for a 13-miler. Some of the other women wanted to do a course outside of the park that was about 8 miles. I decided 'what the heck!' and joined them. It was a lovely run through an area that has some pretty and expensive houses and we ran alongside Little Neck Bay. My pace wasn't impressive but I slowed to enjoy the scenery. I had never even driven up through this area that is so close to where I live. There were also a few killer hills. I felt fine at the end - calves were kind of tight and I was tired, but I wasn't totally spent.


I amazed myself by managing to get to the park for another run yesterday morning. Three and half miles at an easy pace to recover - it was a real slog. My energy was low and my quads were sore but I was proud of myself for running at all.


I'm pretty busy for the rest of this week - might get one more run in before my race on Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it.

    One of my favorite parts of running is going long and "discovering" new areas.

    Good work.
