Easy is the name of the game

I had an enforced 2 weeks of no running. That was hard because last week I was in the Talledega National Forest with my horses and I had time to trail run, but I was still within 2 weeks of the marathon, so I didn't. I really like trail running, especially when I'm at an endurance ride, but I was 'good' and refrained, letting my legs rest. I did ride about 46 miles in 2 days between my two horses, so it's not like I didn't get to see the trails.

This week, I'm back to running, but just easy 2 milers this week. I'll start bumping the mileage back up next week, but still stay with the easy pace. No need to push it.

My next event is scheduled for mid-April in Huntsville, AL. A nice half. I won't be going for a PR or anything. Just out to do an easy pace and enjoy my first race outside of TN.

Spring in TN is a great time to ride horses and run. Looking forward to doing some trail running this spring and summer. I am so blessed to be able to be active.
