Week 3, Day 4, Recovery Week Three

Today, take a 45-50-minute run or a 45-minute walk.

This is the beginning of the third week of our two—to three-week recovery time. The idea is to get a physical, mental, and spiritual break. We read books, nap, goof off, and get outside and enjoy nature.

This week, we suggest daily (4-5) 45-minute runs in the cool part of the day, relaxed, as a pre-week for the Summer Mileage Program, something we have done since the early 2000s.

This is the 4th of July, enjoy the day with your family.

A 45-50-minute easy run.

If you need something to do outside (it is hot today), walk 30 minutes early, ride a bike, or, best yet, take a leisurely swim and enjoy the day!
