Recovery- New Beginning

I put on the HR monitor, took off for the country Vermilion loop and kept the rates under 130 for my recovery run this morning. Legs felt quite well, and very little staleness from yesterday's longer effort. A good recovery run.
A while back I mentioned I was sick of the "thinking" part of running. I have studied for years the different approaches to long distance training, and quite honestly, I didn't want to put in the mental effort this time around. I have taken care of that and paid for coaching services that provided me with the next fifteen weeks of training which takes me up and through Grandma's Marathon. I am very excited to embark on this venture. 

Totals: 47:53   5.9 miles   (HR 128  8:10 pace)

after lot's of reading and many years of attempting this on my own I have been reading a lot of McMillan stuff over the winter and decided to have Greg write me a 16 week plan for Grandma's. Looks good, and I am very excited about it. I would recommend reading his website.
