Almost a day off from running

It's a record day for me. I got off from work at 1500 (3pm that is), the earliest since I've been in command. In reality, it was a late day because we're supposed to be off at noon as part of the holiday 1/2 day schedule. It was quite funny because I didn't know what to do with all the time I had after work.

Today was a scheduled day-off from running as part of my marathon recovery. I managed not to put in a run. Well, that's until the late afternoon/early evening. How can you not get out and run when it's 60 degrees and clear skies in mid-December. I tried to resist the urge to run, but could not do it. The legs continue to feel good and recovered. I only ran for an easy 30 minutes. Afterwards, I got in the usual pushups and abs workout. Oh, there was no challenge from my Soldiers during my company run yesterday.

Today's run: 30:04 (4.2M - 7:10 pace)

Hey ... if the weather is perfect and your legs are feeling strong ... then go for it. Life is way too short to miss ideal running opportunities
