3 easy miles is actually feeling easy now

When I was leading up to this training plan, 3 miles was not easy for me. In fact, I was pretty disappointed about that. One would figure that after running a marathon, three miles would be a breeze. I found myself having to talk a walk break in the middle of my 3 miles workout. I guess I was still rundown from the marathon experience at that point. Now, my Monday runs, which are supposed to be 3 easy miles are actually easy. I’m certainly sweaty and slightly out of breath at the end, but I could easily go another mile, and I don’t ever feel like I need a walk break. I’ve also had some pretty good strength training workouts after these 3 miles runs. Today was no different.
