This week is serving a number of purposes. First, just trying to stay sane as the work really begins to overwhelm. Second, trying to test my legs. It is nice to take some time off and that is really what most injuries require. However, I think just like I went overboard in my training to get hurt in the first place I may have gone overboard in the recovery. Biggest problem is that I am still not 100%. However, things continue to move in the right direction. With the faster mile on Monday and the higher mileage my legs still feel about the same. So my main conclusion may just be to choose a new set point to what "normal" feels like...
The highlight to the week came in that I got the chance to run with someone from the blog. Allie agreed to meet with me during her taper. My main reason for asking for the run was to take part in the excitement of her race prep and hopefully help calm the "taper madness". It was a good run and we had a great chat about the race and other running related issues.
Random commute run.
