Students don't return until tomorrow, but today was a teacher work day and it still felt nice to return to a schedule where most of my weekday runs will take place in the mid-afternoon. I'll begin helping coach cross country next week, but still have this week to do my runs on my own.
I had totally forgotten that I still owned a Forerunner 201 and had loaned it to Neighbor Kate a while back. We'll just share it until I get my 305 back up and running. I tried to call Garmin's tech support today, but the wait was over 30 minutes according to the robot-voice lady, so I hung up and will try again tomorrow, but during the morning hours.
Today's run felt great. Hamstrings felt pretty darn good, almost a non-issue. However, the bottoms of my feet have been aching the past few days. That went away a few miles into today's run however.
Aside from that, the run went pretty stellar. The pace felt effortless and my energy was great. I think I'm finally starting to turn the corner on my prolonged recovery, but I'll still proceed with caution.
Ran 8.2 miles @ 8:01/mile pace.
Mid 70s, partly sunny.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.
