Recovery Runs

Saturday, May 9, 2009:

St Croix Valley Runners, the usual five miles, at a tempo pace but not quite a race pace. Nice recovery run for last weekend’s marathon.

Three speedsters flew out ahead and I ran behind with Paul, Wayne, and Jim, who ran to the event and then ran back home, clocking a total of about fifteen miles. We four finished in 45:12, for a pace of 9:02.

The forecast had threatened a rainy, blustery morning, but in fact the sky was blue in all directions and it was a breezy, invigorating 42 degrees. Shorts with a wind jacket over one shirt kept me plenty warm. Gloves felt good too. What a beautiful day for running with friends.

Sunshine is temporarily out of commission with a sore MCL, so Sweet Pea and I went to a nearby neighborhood to run and walk in a low-traffic area. This was the first run since the Lincoln Marathon last Sunday, so we wanted to take it easy and we sure did, running 3.3 miles in 38:30, a pace of about 11:30. Good run.

These breakfasts looks delicious. How much does one cost you on average? You put a ton of fruit which is nice, but I know it can be expensive.
