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.

Fartlek Hills

2 mile warm up, followed by 5 laps, each just over a mile with 3 good hills (approximately 150 m each), for a total of 15 hills run hard.  Then a couple mile cool down until I hit 10 miles for the run.  Everything but the hills was run easy.

It was a nice cool (low 60s) cloudy morning for a long run. The wind was a little strong, but I can live with that.  I ran my 1st 11 miles solo then met up with Blake for the last 12 miles.  It was nice to have some company to for the second half of the run.  It sure made those last 12 miles go fast and feel pretty darn easy.

6 easy trail miles this afternoon. Our high temp for today was only 75 degrees!  That is crazy cold for Havasu in May.  It is often over 100 by now.  Anyways, I took advantage of it by running in the afternoon instead of early morning.  Those 6 miles put me at 70 miles for the week. I can't remember the last time I put in 70 in one week.  Since I didn't swim or bike this week, I actually felt like I did less exercise than normal though.
