11/16/2017 5 mile recovery run

The weather was nice enough to warm up to low 50's today so my run was not cold a bit.  It did pour on me during mile 4, but it only lasted about 30 seconds.  I ran a comfortable pace of around 8:05-8:10/mile.  It was a little faster than I wanted to go, coming off my 7 miler yesterday.  I felt good though and I am a little cramped for time today so I just went with it and finished in just under 41 minutes.  

Tomorrow, I will run 5-6 miles at a little slower pace and finish a strong week of around 23-25 miles.  I am excited to turn the corner on my lack of running motivation.  Racing is more in my mind coming forward and I still believe I can do some good things, even at my age :)

Oh, and someone about a month ago basically said that I could not qualify for Boston at this point of my life.  Maybe not, but it won't be from a lack of effort.
