Easy recovery....

This morning I ran a recovery run of 8 miles at around a 8 min pace per mile. This included a stop and stretch at mile 4 for recovery purposes since I got in a 10 miler yesterday.

Some people give me a hard time saying 8 miles is way too long for a recovery run which can be true if you're extra tired or run the recovery too fast (which I'm guilty of many time). 7 or 8 mile recoveries work for me because it takes me 2-3 miles just to loosen up after a long run.

No weight lifting today as the weekend is for rest and recovery from the shredding they receive during the week. Of course, running in a must though as there are no complete days off from doing anything.
