Not Quite What I was Looking For

Today I was scheduled for a recovery 5.0 miles and guess what – that is what I did. Will wonders never cease, me actually sticking to the plan! Well I am getting better and I really wanted to add an extra mile at the end, but I got to thinking about it and I really don’t need to and stuck to what was written.

Downback is starting to dry up enough to be able to run down through without breaking or twisting ankle.


I went out a little faster than I wanted, but at the same time I felt fine and was running very easy

My splits were consistently slower, which is what I purposely did, I knew that I went out a little to fast and needed to get in the 9:20’s to make this a real recovery run. It just took me a little longer than I expected.

I tried wearing the thinnest socks that I own, but at 3.6 miles I had to take my right sock off and go sockless the rest of the way. I am not real crazy about the way running sockless feels, but it seems as though that is something I will just have to live with.

It was a little too fast at the start for a good recovery run, I was in that gray zone too much.

  1. Had to laugh! Your 9:20 recovery run is often my goal pace 🙂

    Well done sticking with the plan! For some reason your RSS feed isnt updating with your posts. I'll see if i can fix it later this weekend. Strange.

  2. Everyone is different my goal pace is other's recovery pace, we are all on the continuum somewhere ;-). Hmmm I will look to see if Feedburner is still setup correctly on my end.
