Worked from home today, and was able to take advantage of the great weather (60°F+) and go for a lunchtime run. Thinking my legs would still be sore from yesterday’s 22 mile run, I just planned on running 4 or 5 easy miles. However, despite the gusty conditions, my legs felt great and I managed to get in just over 7 miles before heading back to work.
The first mile was a steady 7:49 before I gradually picked up the pace to finish with a 7 minute mile – not as quick as yesterday’s long run, but this was just meant to be an easy recovery run after all.
Quite strangely, the temperature turned out to be an unseasonal 66°F with a gusty south wind – the complete opposite to yesterday’s north wind and 40°F. I wonder what the conditions will be for the Shamrock Marathon? Judging by the past couple of days, there’s no point even thinking about it at this stage in the game – anything could happen between now and March 16th.
