Running Thought of The Week:  The Trails Are Always Open..

Monday:  Great run.  I had no real goal when I first went out other then to run in my new Hokas Stinsons.  Started the run on the conservative side,.  Midway thru, powered by @runnershighntr, I felt pretty good and turned on during the second five miles.  Finishing up, I ran my fastest ten miles (either in a race or training) ever at 1hr 22min 25sec.  The Hokas provided a cushioned ride with a fit that rivaled my Nike Air Pegasus.

Tuesday:  After my ten mile run Monday night, my only real objective was to log a few miles.  Michele and I stayed on Fort Lee where I ran The Peterborough National Battlefield Trails repeating a hilly section twice.  Although my legs were a bit tired it was a very pleasant run.

Wednesday:  Another double digit run around the HOA.  Nothing great and nothing bad.

Thursday:  Last planned run before Windermere Marathon.  My legs felt sluggish and some tenderness in my left ankle provided the motivation to shut down the training early.

Saturday/Sunday:  50 minutes on the elliptical, I hate being stuck inside but very thankful I have an alternative when I can’t run or when it’s better that I don’t run.  Good workout and no tenderness.
