No recovery needed after the Long Beach Marathon on Sunday. My foot felt terrible the two days before the race and then fair the day of the race. Today it felt better than it has in weeks, I also felt refreshed (other than I got home and in bed at 2 am this morning. Decided to do a faster and shorter progressive run this morning. The weather was warm at 80 degrees but the humidity and dew point were low making it much more plesant than 70 degrees with the typical 90% humidity. It's funny how much hotter it can be if the dew point is low and still feel good.
I'm thinking I'm in about 7:20 shape for the Chosen Half Marathon coming up in about a month and hoping to drop that down to about 7:10 by race time.
This is the first time I've hit a 6:xx pace in a long....time!
