6 mi. Today was a run back into the training for Two Rivers Marathon Festival. I had been “off” for a week following A1A Marathon, this 6 mile easy run was next on the calendar.
I ran in PGA National, my regular route. the weather when I began at 8:40 am was 55 degrees – near perfect for me in a long sleeved shirt and shorts. lululemon Sea Wheeze 2012 shorts!
I have plenty of daydream time on these runs. Today I kept snapping back to thoughts of how selecting a late March marathon to aim for allows us to use the most favorable South Florida weather months for training. Today was so nice. Tomorrow morning will be nice. This has to add up to another 8 weeks of training followed by a slightly warmer than usual day in Hawley, Pa on March 28th for the race I’m in. I was very glad to be back ticking off miles and a few striders in my neighborhood. Things are going well for this training cycle so far!
