When I woke up I realized it was hard to swallow. Oh please, tell me I'm not catching my husband's crud! Hopefully it's just sinus related and I'm not actually getting sick. I felt slightly better after my coffee so I decided I'd go ahead with today's run.
My calendar told me that I had 8 miles of hills. I took it nice and easy and I didn't push it. The weather was beautiful and it was a perfect 68 degrees with a chill in the wind. I'm supposed to be running my hills workouts at a 9:58 min/mile but that just didn't feel right to me. I went with what felt good and I ended up with an average 9:14 min/mile. Overall, the run felt great. My throat, however, did not.
I stretched and showered and was back in my pajamas by 6 p.m. For dinner I wanted something easy and warm so I made this.
Do we take enough time to relax? It's hard for us runners to take it easy. We have an agenda! We need to take those rest days and recover. Is it as hard for you to rest as it is for me?
I hope you have a relaxing night,
