Great day of running!!! 20 miler went great, plus I got to run most of it in snow flurries - which is cool since I only get to do that once or twice a year. After that, ran 4.67 with my daughter which went great too!
I ran the first half of the run fairly slow and then picked up to marathon pace over the second half. My overall pace ended up a little slower than I wanted, but it was only about 15 degrees when I was running, so not bad considering. My legs felt great and I felt like I was coasting most of the run - exactly what I wanted for this run.
I was a little worried about the 4 mile cool down with Madi and how I would feel, but it went great too. Out of all the running I do - THIS IS MY FAVORITE! We of course are at different paces and places in our running, but I love watching her grow as a runner - plus spending time with her is invaluable! She was pumped to wear some of her new running clothes she got for Christmas.
81 MILES THIS WEEK!!! Whewhoooooo!!! This is my high water mark for a 7 day period. Right now I feel great, but we'll see tomorrow. I'm planning a 6-8 mile recovery run. Great day!
