Morning Recovery Run on the Treadmill
I have been having difficulty holding the pace down for my recovery runs, so I decided with the terrible weather to hit the gym this morning and put in a dreaded treadmill workout. I kept the pace to 8:30 min/mile and felt fine. Had to pee way too many times, so it broke the run up a bit and I couldn't change the TV channel from Fox News, so that was miserable, but overall it was what my body needed.
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
