Cool temps and 1.5 mile recovery jog

Normally, I don't run the day after a long run but I was reading in Runner's World that an easy 20-30 minute recovery run after a long run can aid in recovery. So, the purpose of this morning's run was to take advantage of the beautiful weather, play more with the new toy, and get the blood flowing a little bit to continue to recover from yesterday's run.

So I did 1.5 miles at an average 15:07 pace. This is right at long run pace so perfect!!! The weather was beautiful and there were many smiling faces out there. A little less nudity than I've gotten used to over the summer but plenty of sweat to go around.

Going to be a great week!!! Run strong all and God bless!!!

It will get better again, Vic, as it gets even colder. ;)

I don't do a recovery run every week, but I do find they help.

I'm sorry you didn't get as much nudity today....
