Happy Hump day peeps!! Wow I can’t believe how fast this training cycle is going by. I’m approaching week 10 already. I will be running in Jacksonville before we know it!!
This week is going well so far. I started the week off with a 14 mile MLR. The run went great and I’m happy where I am in training so far.

Today’s run was a 6 mile recovery run. Actually I have three 6 mile recovery runs this week and then a big 16 miler with 12 miles at marathon pace on Saturday. So as I was looking at my schedule I thought to myself how did I get so fortunate to have 3 recovery runs in a week?? I don’t know but I’m enjoying it!! So this short post is dedicated to the recovery run.

Recovery runs are runs where you want to run at a relaxed paced to loosen your muscles up for your harder workouts during the week. If you can’t hold a conversation during your recovery runs than you’re running too fast. Some people say to run your recovery run 15-25% slower than goal marathon race pace. I tend to stick with this philosophy. Most of my recovery runs are at about a 10– 10:30 pace. I always have to remind myself not to go too fast on recovery runs because I will have a chance to run faster later in the week. This week is a great example of that. I will be taking it easy for the next two days before I unleash on my marathon pace run on Saturday. Yea!!

This is me after this morning’s 6 mile recovery run.
