The Cold Rain

I woke up very late this morning. As a result, I didn't have time to get in a run before Kate and I were to meet up with Jim and Shauna at Harris Farm for Maine Maple Sunday. Lot's of folks there, despite a cold rain falling throughout, which was good to see.

Mmmmm, grass-fed steak. 
After feasting on pancakes, checking out the cows and buying some other goodies, we headed back and I got ready to run. Purpose was recovery. I love these runs that follow the hard workouts. It's nice to just go slow and enjoy it. What better place to do that than the woods?

Hit the trails in the woods out back and really enjoyed it, despite the cold rain. I was dressed right for it though. Just nice to be in the woods and listen to the rain fall and the occasional chirping bird.

Ran 7.7 miles @ 9:47/mile pace.
Trails.
Very hilly.
Around 40 degrees, light to moderate rain throughout.
New Balance MT110, long tights, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves (shed halfway).

you have just amazed me with your progress, your training, your use of the recovery the way it was intended. Your hay is definitely in the barn and stacked very well!

What Scout said! We commented today on our run about how great you are doing and how smart you've been training. Love watching your times drop and learning from your experience :D
