Friday Mystery Run

by on Apr.20, 2012, under Training Runs

First run since Hogeye.  Had a nice recovery week and it felt great to get back out for a run today.  Tim and I did our Friday mystery run route, turning whenever we decided to.  Ran towards downtown, through the tunnel at Hendrix, out past Wal-Mart, up the back of the beast (Salem hill) and back to the fitness center.  We ran a very comfortable pace and picked it up a bit at the end.

As I reflect on the Little Rock and Hogeye marathons these past two months I see the need for a high mileage base to fuel my legs and “anaerobic machine”.  8 mile runs like this are perfect.  I’m going to go for high mileage weeks with comfortable runs, not necessarily slow runs, and see how I do.  I would like to build up to a 3 hour run every weekend.  We’ll see.  Just glad to be out there running as the light moves in and the sun comes up.  It’s the perfect time of year to be running.
