Only goal today was recovery and shake the legs loose, so kept the distance short and the pace wicked slow. Heart rate averaged just 116 bpm. Legs a bit sore from yesterday, but not too bad. Today's run along with tomorrow's scheduled rest day are good timing and should allow for ample recovery.
Nice and warm this morning. I got out just a bit after sunrise and it was in the mid-40s. Very nice indeed, and felt great to comfortably run in shorts again.
Kept my eyes and ears open for red-winged blackbirds during the run today. No luck. These birds are among the first spring migrants and normally get here late February or early March. I'm sure they're about, I just haven't chanced upon them yet. Oh well, soon I'm sure...
Ran 3.8 miles @ 9:28/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 116/125
Mid 40s, overcast.
Brooks Mach 11, shorts, short sleeved shirt, long sleeved shirt (sleeves pushed up halfway through the run), cap.
