One assumes that after a race like Salida, it'll take a few days for your legs to come back to you. Hell, when I was younger, the thought of "training through" a marathon was unfathomable. It's good news then to feel that I have bounced back faster than I did after Austin. That's a testament to the evils of concrete if you ask me. Anyway, I was a bit conservative with throwing in more work and waited until Thursday to test out the engine.
Going forward, I'm expecting to start feeling tired as I do work. I've managed to keep that pre-season feeling in the legs, but looking ahead, I think there's gonna be some real work to do. 8 days until my 36th birthday run, 5 weeks till Cheyenne Mtn, and 7 weeks till Collegiate Peaks.
Today is a staff development day, then we're off on Spring Break. Should be some solid training. New Rise Against came out on Tuesday...the whole album is still growing on me, but definitely a few good "get off your ass and do something about it" tracks on it.
