I asked M to start without me for a change today. Usually I am the one planning on more miles so I head out first for an hour or more before we start our run together. Today, M wanted to do 3 hours and I thought I still needed one more easy day to recover from back to back long runs on the weekend. So M started without me and I joined her a little later.
M had already done about 10 miles when I joined her. She ignored me when I said I only wanted to do an hour today, and led me out into the National Forest at the end of Town Hall Rd in North Conway. I really didn't feel too bad and ended up running 1:55 for about 12 miles of dirt roads and trails. My hamstrings were a little tight starting out, but felt better by the time we finished. The weather was beautiful, sunny and in the fifties. It was nice to see dandelions out!
