Recovery run

It was 80+ degrees and sunny for this run.  I was feeling pretty good, so I pushed it a bit.  Like I said before, I'll be concentrating on shorter, faster runs for the summer with my longest run being 8 miles.

I'll be doing plenty of speed work with quarter, half, and mile intervals in my training.  In fact, here is what coach Kent is proposing for me:

Monday:  8 miles with pickups lasting 30 seconds to 2 minutes (you decide as you progress)
Tuesday:  OFF
Wednesday:  6 miles with 4-8 quarter miles in 2 mins (start with 4 and then increase to 6 and then to 8 over a few weeks)
Thursday:  OFF
Friday:  4 miles easy
Saturday:  8 miles easy

Of course, race weekends, I'll take it easy on Wednesday and take off Friday.
