As planned, today was an off day, and based on the way my legs, particularly my lower legs, felt this morning, I needed it. Going back to a recent post on discipline, I worked this out just about right. I am still concerned, however, that the cumulative strain I'm putting on my legs will eventually catch up with me, but as my legs improved throughout the day today I have less concern in this area than I did.
I'll resume tomorrow with the planned ten mile run at around 7:45 a mile or so, so we'll see. It feels good right now to have a short-term plan and a long-term plan, and have both coming together.
