Really great start to the day! Awesome 1/2 hour core workout before the run, then nice slow recovery run in Cedar Rapids, IA. Schedule permitting, hopefully this will be followed by medium-to-hard leg workout this evening, and by 2-4 more slow recovery miles.
This week has been a GREAT jump-start to Project 3:09!!! I can't begin to explain or be thankful enough for just how healthy I am right now. I worked hard on the new foot strike this winter, and in doing so really reduced my mileage. Granted - I'm at about 1,200 miles for the year, but most of them weren't "killer miles". As much as I hate to admit it (because I was ready to throw this whole foot-strike experiment away) I know it has made me healthier, and has reduced my risk of the common naggin' aches and pains that I usually struggle with. But still, would I recommend it - NOPE!!! I think most people should stay where they're at unless injury forces a change. But anyway - I think overall it has worked for me. Hope your running's going well!
... be great today!
