Healing Legs, New Shoes

Ran 2.0 miles @ 7:45/mile pace
Ran 2.0 miles @ 8:30/mile pace

Today I just ran the warm up and cool down run with the high school XC team. I was tempted to do the mile repeats with them, but that wouldn't be wise.

The good news is that my legs felt great today. Dare I say they even felt fresh. Plan is to continue to take it easy the rest of this week and all of next. I have the Mt. Desert Island Marathon to run on October 15th and though I won't be in the best shape for it given the 50-miler last week, I'd still like to post a respectable time.

Today I also ran in a new pair of New Balance 767s that I bought yesterday. Great fit for me and all signs are pointing to a pair of great shoes here in the early onset.

If you can get to the starting line fully recovered, you'll do fine. Recovery has to be job #1 these days.
