This three week gap between ultras has allowed me to finally do something other than short recovery runs. I keep going faster every day! It isn't until after I write it down that I think that 7 miles in an hour is not a hard run - how that was a warm-up three years ago - but it's so much better than what I've been doing that I'm actually looking forward to the 100 miler.
I may do a hill run today. I may finally get out to Afton this weekend. Maybe it's the weather, but I am enjoying running again. Looking at my calendar from last year, at this time I was running a lot further and a lot faster, but I was pretty depressed and anxious. Slow but happy is a trade I'm willing to make.
