Recovery Day and No Water

A day off yesterday with an easy, short run today was on the agenda after finishing off last week in a relative flurry. Actually, most of this week will focus on taking it easy, at least until a potential long run on Saturday... if and only if everything continues to feel on track.

Another benefit to today's shorter run is that I didn't sweat as much. While I have electricity, the well pump doesn't, so I haven't had running water for the past two days. This is all thanks to a storm that dumped over a foot of heavy, wet snow the other day and caused a lot of problems across Maine. Hopefully it'll be fixed today so I can take a nice, hot shower!

Ran 5.3 miles @ 8:26/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 148/158
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
30 degrees, sunny, breezy.
Long pants, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves (off and on).

Well at least you can melt the snow and have something to drink! Keep at it and you'll get through the season in good shape.
