After taking two days off it was good to get back on the road with Nathan this morning for a relatively easy paced 9-mile run. We ran a modified version of our “Steeplechase” route through Percy and Edwin Warner Parks, which is quite hilly. My legs are still a bit sluggish after the marathon last week, but overall this run felt pretty good, especially considering the hills and the humidity. Even at 6am, the temps were in the mid 60s and the humidity was nasty. Not looking forward to the summer months when we get this type of humidity with temps in the 80s and 90s.
On a side note, I have decided to hire a coach to help me develop my training plan for the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon in October. I know I’m going to have to take my training up to another level to qualify for Boston, and I really wanted someone else with a lot of experience to give me their recommendation on what that should look like. Very excited (an nervous) to see what he comes up with.
