6.3 very easy recovery run. The hardest part of this run was getting out the door and getting it done. If it had been raining I'd still be setting on the couch wasting away. TGFSS.

Todays schedule calls for a 6 mile easy run. Easy as qualified by "Peak Training" time. So it will probably be more like a tempo run...1 mile warm up, 4 miles at marathon pace and 1 mile warm down. Then again I might just do an easy 10 miles at a moderate pace.

OK I whimped out, I went back to my training schedule and decided I would follow it no matter how good I felt. Went out for a 6 mile easy run. Now I'll be ready for a tough 10 mile tempo trainer thursday!!! Gotta' remember to "RUN SMART"!
