Okay, this morning I was behind the snowblower and shovel for more than 2 hours – I know it is just part of the deal of living in Maine, but man was I tired after manhandling the machinery and the old snow shovel. When TheWife kindly beat on my shoulders tonight, the knots were on top of the knot.
Also my legs were still tired from yesterday’s long run and this morning’s snow removal didn’t make them feel any better.
Although my legs were a little toasty, I still wanted to get out and just get an easy run in to get the blood moving around in there.
There was one more problem – the road conditions…while they were not really bad there was just enough slushy/snow and stuff to make it tough running.
All during the run, any time I tried to toe off, the road simply laughed at my efforts (even though I was wearing my N1 Trails) and did its best to see if my face or butt and the tar could suddenly meet.
Overall, it was one of those runs where you just put forth the effort, not worry about time and get back to the house without falling/pulling a muscle or any other injuries.
Nice recovery run.
