Lower month w/ taper and recovery from marathon. still a little tired. I'm having to re-learn how to recover.
Sleep is good. less than 8 hours matters. And the time change goes back to dark mornings and cold spring w/ little sun making for lazy days when I get home from work. need to get back to double days. have started a little speedwork, i.e. 20 mins of speedwork based on a 5k pace of 9:24.
