My legs were still a bit sore after Sunday’s Around the Bay 30K race, so this morning I did a 10.5K recovery run at an easy pace. I was prepared to go a shorter distance, but I felt surprisingly strong, so did the whole scheduled 10.5. I’m glad I did. It helped a lot that, though the temperature was only -2C, the sky was clear, and I ran towards the rising sun. That’s always a very positive experience for me.
I definitely had that “strong old animal” feeling this morning!
p.s. I’ll post a report on Sunday’s race soon. I’m still processing all that happened – and waiting for the official photos to become available.
