The buzz and recovery phase from the A1A Marathon has gone on long enough. Back to training.
Last year's adventure in the record heat wave and hills of the fluid deprived inaugural Georgia Marathon fell on the same weekend as my favorite 10K so I missed it. This year I have four more weeks to get ready.
The Winter Park Road Race falls at a great time down here. It can still be cool out. Spring bloom is everywhere. There's the Winter Park Art Festival and all the baseball spring training, Easter, College Reunion, Spring Break, etc. It's all very exciting. This year I am in.
I have been doing several recovery runs since the A1A. Two days after was for 3 miles. Saturday I went six. Sunday was seven a little faster. Tuesday was four and today was a tempo five. Next week I'll pick up the training plan for 10Ks, starting from four weeks out.
Tomorrow will be a nippy 39 degrees here. One more chance to layer up and run for all I'm worth. It'll be back in the 70s by the weekend.
