Finally, spring has arrived! What better way to usher in the new season, while bidding good riddance to winter, than with a refreshing post-work run?
After taking it easy for a few days following last Sunday’s NYC Half, it felt good to lace-up the Adidas. With another Half on the calendar for Saturday, I wasn’t sure whether I should classify tonight’s easy 3-miler as a “recovery” or “shake-out” run. Either way, I knew I should take it easy.
I’ve never raced 13.1 miles on back-to-back weekends, so I’m admittedly a bit nervous about what I may have gotten myself into. My plan is to take it easy and see how I feel, knowing that it may well prove to be a nice training run (except accompanied by a shirt, snacks and medal at the end).
What I do know is that no matter my pace, place or time, the experience is sure to yield some important lessons. That alone will make this weekend’s trek to Queens worthwhile.
