My legs really needed that recovery week. I felt much fresher today than I have in a while.  After a 1 mile warm up, I did 6 x 1 mile (5:59, 5:58, 6:00, 6:01, 6:08, 6:09)  with half mile recovery jogs and then a cool down until I hit 11 miles.

Recovery is good...I should know, I've had plenty of it.

Awesome repeats! Looks like you're setting up for a good summer.

Your gonna crush your marathon! My back feels better, but still at about 80%. I'm scared to do any swimming or weight lifting with it right now. Running felt good, but a deep breathe still let me know that everything was not 100%. If you want company for 10-12 miles of your long run on Friday let me know!

From Rhett on Wed, May 13, 2015 at 10:08:20 from

Blake, I'd love your company during my long run Friday. I'm thinking I'll get the first half done then swing by your place so I can have some company on the last half.
