Recovery Run as Planned — September 29, 2021

What I am thinking about this morning? It was clear and brisk this morning and at 42 degrees, gloves, and jacket were necessary on Bennie’s first walk. So, Fall is officially here, I had to wear gloves. Today’s run is all about recovery and working on running relaxed. After yesterday’s harder run and some mobility/strength work last night, my glutes and hamstrings are a little … Continue reading Recovery Run as Planned — September 29, 2021
