Recovery Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 36:11
Pace: 9:02 min/mi

Comments: I'm finally starting to feel like my running legs are coming back. I was pretty tired yesterday afternoon and slept very hard but didn't feel wiped out this morning. I intended to do this one pretty slow and expected 10 min/mi pace or thereabouts.

Instead I felt pretty good from the start  strong pace, solid control and no weird aches or pains. I even felt the need to push the tempo a little on the final half mile or so. The final time was slower than my recent runs but if this is recovery run pace, that's an amazing amount of progress in three weeks.
