Today is the only day of the year that is also a command. I marched forth with my own little recovery run. Nothing special. Just a little over four miles at an easy pace. Felt good to shake the legs loose.
Quads were definitely the muscle group that was worked the hardest during yesterday's race. As for being sick, I think I'm nearly over it. Yesterday, was probably 70%. Today, about 95%.
Despite it being somewhat blustery out today, it's that time of year to keep an eye and ear out for Maine's harbingers of spring: red-winged blackbirds. None yet, but any day now. Fun to keep watch for them while running.
Ran 4.4 miles @ 8:18/mile pace.
Mid 30s, overcast, breezy.
