Tale of Two Cities

On the way to Eastern Illinois for indoor nationals.  Ran twice with Coach Vais today, once in Peoria then again in Matoon.  The weather was a bit milder from what we left in Iowa as evidenced by greening grass and presence of sweet gum trees (a more temperate growing zone).

I was pleased with how I felt during a few stretches of the runs today but also it's very apparent that I don't have the legs that I did when I used to train for marathons nor am I able to handle much pavement.  Perhaps I have become too complacent with the training that's evolved at Lime Creek...I hope the Black Hills 50 has a lot of trail running!

12 miles for the day as 8 in the AM and 4 in the PM.
