Marathon Training Day #119: Take it easy

This is my garden. It is oh so slowly coming together.

This is my garden. It is oh so slowly coming together.

Lately. I’ve been taking two rest days after my long run, but this week, for a bunch of reasons, it didn’t really work out. I’m a slow recoverer (is that even a word?), and had 12k on my schedule for tonight. I found that number to be really overwhelming, so I told myself to just get out there, take it easy and do what I could do. Out of all my runs planned this week, this one was the least important.

So that’s what I did. I really wasn’t feeling it 4k in, just before Pottery Road hill. ¬†Somehow I convinced myself to run up that damn thing. Because I did that, I gave myself permission to shorten the route home a bit. In the end, I was slower and shorter than I hoped, but it’s another run in the bank.

I can see the finish line.
