I just got done writing a product review but I also wanted to touch upon today’s run.

The tone of yesterday’s post left the question, “Am I ready for a cutback week or am I just tired from a hard weekend of training?”

Well, I’m happy to report that it appears to just be the effects of a hard weekend and yesterday’s easy 8 mile slog was enough to make my legs bounce back nicely for today’s 11 mile run.

It’s a good thing they felt good too, because given the weather (10 degrees with a wind chill of -8), it could have been a miserable run. Instead, Bob Dylan, the guys from Zed Zeppelin and I had a mostly enjoyable run. I say “mostly” because even though I knew it was going to cool off, I didn’t expect the wind chill to be that cold. As a result, I wore the wrong gloves and my hands got cold. Other then freezing my “you know what,” freezing my hands is the worst.

Sometimes these quotes of the day seem to pop up at just the right time;

“There is a difference between needing an easy week and having an easy week built in. The Finns who used the Lydiard system before the Munich Olympics had a 70% week every 4th week and used it to stay ahead of the recovery curve, not to catch up on recovery.” - Mystery Coach
