Rest Day Three

It’s the final rest day at the top of the Boston ’17 training program. I’m jonesing to get a run in. I do feel like the rest has benefitted my legs. The soreness is gone, though the usual stiffness in the morning remains. I’m sure that’s age as much as anything else! The rest of the week, starting tomorrow, will be low easy miles – 26 miles total. Next week has a single “Something of Substance” run: a 9-mile speed workout on Tuesday. Those SOS runs are a Hanson’s hallmark. The following week, everything kicks into high gear with a speed workout, tempo run and a long run. Right now, I feel fresh and ready.
