03/10/2015 Today's workout and recovery

After running for 2 hours yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised that I was only marginally sore this morning.  I would say that 95% of the soreness went away in the first 15 minutes of the recovery run I just finished up.  I ran about an hour and finished with a total of 6.75-7 miles.  

I really wanted to run an easy pace the whole hour and not worry about mileage, but I got a carried away thinking about the upcoming races in a couple months and decided to fast finish the last 15 minutes or so.  I don't plan on or want to do that often as I fully believe the recovery runs are as important to my body as my distance or speed workouts, but once in awhile I can't help it.

In the coming weeks, I will get a better idea where I project to be in relation to my Ridgewood Run 5K goal as well as my Franklin Lake Triathlon 5M goal.  I am confident in the base I am building.  It really just boils down to the speed work I do and how my body responds to it.

I will review my goals shortly and will continue to revise if needed.
