30 Jul Recovery Run

After my 10-miler yesterday, running this morning’s easy 3-mile Recovery Run was totally geared to putting it all back together–body and mind.

Headed out the door with my tunes (always like that for getting started early in the day). Gradually made my way to a nearby woods.

The trails felt soft underfoot; the dappled rays of sunlight shone softly on my eyes; and, the surrounding trees and greenery softened and eased residual stress.

Running at a comfortable pace through the woods this morning fits my definition for a perfect Recovery Run.

Highly recommend it, any time, any day. Cheerios, Linda

    I love recovery runs too for their physical as well as emotional benefits. They rank right up there with those weeks when your long run mileage gets decreased for a break/recovery.
