Recovery on the Rail Trails

Another good sign after yesterday's tempo run is that my legs feel a little better than on par. This is compared to the day after other tempo runs that occurred during the Boston cycle. This means not really feeling the effects of the tempo run until I run that day after.

Such was the case today. The legs felt a little tired but nothing really heavy, which is normal. It's generally easy to keep the pace slow, which is how it should be. Nice.

Rather enjoyable run on the rail trails today, which are great for recovery runs because they're not really hilly and the surface is soft. Still overcast and cool, but no wind or rain. Still, after being miserable during the cool down run yesterday because I was underdressed, I was perhaps a little overdressed today. Not having the rain or wind makes all the difference.

Ran 6.0 miles @ 8:38/mile pace.
