What do you get when you pair a random Tuesday with blurry blue skies (the kind of sky that looks sorta hazy, sorta not...just plain blurry), long legs and the Dunmores? Tuesday Ten Miler!
Huzzah, we back baby!
Yesterday's T10 felt awesome, and surprisingly quick and springy. In the aftermath, I felt every step of it, which is funny 'cuz the aftermath of my trail 50k just four weeks ago left my legs feeling fresher than before the race. How does that happen? I wore my RecoFit calf sleeves all day at work and today I am very thankful for those sleeves :)
So thankful, in fact, that we stepped out into the pouring, blowing rain this morning for a quick three miles around the Pier. Why not? Geof says the wind was gusting at 25mph, and I believe it. I was getting blown sideways and then we had a terrific tailwind on our way back. If we had been running the 2011 Boston Marathon our finish time would not have counted due to the tailwind ;-) I kid. A little.
Anywho, three groovy runs in a row this week. That's pretty sweet. You know what else is also sweet, but not too sweet? Trader Joe's non-fat Greek yogurt with honey and strawberry preserves stirred in. I could literally subsist on that stuff right now. SO GOOD!
So that's the good word this week. Hopefully there's a long run in our future. We're in need of one of those :)
