Even though it was gray and humid, today's recovery run went by very quickly. The streets were quieter than usual. I chose a relatively flat route, but I've noticed that most of my routes include some for-realz hills. Jenica had the idea that I should drive to a flat route for easier runs, and I might do that this Friday. I avoided most puddles and reminded myself to take it easy ;)
I know that recovering and rest are essential parts of being a runner, especially a marathoner. As training continues, I'll need to focus on running my recovery runs nice 'n' slow, stretching, sleeping, hydrating, and getting extra protein and carbs.
