The second twenty miler is in the books! It really feels good to get these runs done. This was not my best twenty miler. I averaged 10:19's for the run and this is a bit slower than I was needing. However, I am satisfied because I was tired going into the run today. Does anybody else out there in blog land live with perpetual quad soreness? My body is definitely dealing with soreness. Yet I now see how the taper comes in to play. It is a most important balancing act, to diminish training stress and replenish muscle health all the while not losing all that you worked for.
I had a stray dog hook up with me for about four miles. A good looking chocolate Lab. He was a really good dog! He stuck close, stayed smart, and treated me with respect, in other words he knew where I was and where I was going to be so he never got in my way.When I got home I feed and watered him, then he took off for more adventures. I really enjoyed his company! I have always loved dogs. Especially hunting dogs. Being an Outdoorsman I enjoy the beauty of a dog on the hunt. Hope I see him again.
Well the boys are over for dinner tonight. It'll be fun! There will be a great political discussion, there will be a great battle in a board game and we will enjoy our family. I also have a fantastic Daughter-in-law. No grand babies yet, though.
Off day tomorrow!!! Peace!
