Six Miles and Recovery Time

Six Miles and Recovery Time
First 6 in 6!Yesterday, I wined and dined with my husband at a FABULOUS restaurant,  Thyme2.  We feasted on duck confit strudel, and we toasted our nineteen years of marriage with a nice Bordeaux.  While eating a pork chop the size of my head, I was contemplating my morning run. 

Six miles.  Can I do it?

Weather:  Fresh snow.  25 degrees F, feels like 15 degrees F
Route:  Towpath.  Relatively flat.
Time:  7:30 am
Company:  Three lovely running peeps:  Debi, Deidre, and Amy
I was a little bit apprehensive because I obviously wasn't taking seriously my responsibility to the long run.  I know I should be eating healthfully, not drinking wine.  I know I should go to bed early.  I didn't do any of those things, and I have been having a difficult time getting back my stamina, so I wondered if I actually COULD do those miles.

So, how did I do? Want to learn about a cool recovery trick you can do after your workout?    Click here to read the rest of the story.
