Easy, recovery run. 3 miles. Ave pace: 12:06. Total time: 36:19. Took it easy. Didn’t enjoy the wind or cold.
48 degrees. Winds 12 – 15 mph. This past few days has felt like an early taper as I prepare for my longest weekend run in my training that I’ll do on Sunday around the perimeter of a local lake. My running buddy and I estimate the distance to be about 28 miles. I’ve taken it fairly easy on the legs the past few days since the volume has been higher than I’ve ever put them through before. I seem to be handling it pretty well, but I’m so close to my two races that I do want to play it careful. My half marathon is 3 weeks from this Saturday and my 50k Ultra is 4 weeks from this Saturday. I’m getting nervous and excited!
