There are days like yesterday when at least for a minute you have a glimmer of "this is how its suppose to be/feel like" or moreso "this is what I have been working towards". That meaning, that yesterday just 5 days after probably the most taxing effort I have made in a race (or equal to Mad City), I was able to go for a brilliant 10 mile run, the day after doing a nice easy 8 miler. I am trying not to rush back into it at all and will ease my way into the weekend, but there was no residual soreness or tiredness from the race. I really feel like my training and nutrition has gotten me to this place where the idea of racing 4 times in 2 months seems more and more realistic and that I will be able to put in good efforts at each race.
It is a nice feeling to say the least!
