Double Down

Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work.-- Booker T. Washington

I woke up today at 4am to run 6 miles. There isn't much special about that but it was the first part of a scheduled 12 miles today. I don't have a great deal of time in the morning so I can't just run 12 miles randomly.

Usually I'll do one of the runs pretty hard and the other one really easy. I want to log miles and time on my feet without really stressing my body at all. Easy days for me should be rest days in disguise. Rest days are active but not in the crosstraining, yoga way. It is active recovery. I make sure I nurse my nagging injuries and rest anything that may be overused.
