Today I was scheduled for a recovery 5.0 miles and guess what – that is what I did. Will wonders never cease, me actually sticking to the plan! Well I am getting better and I really wanted to add an extra mile at the end, but I got to thinking about it and I really don’t need to and stuck to what was written.
Downback is starting to dry up enough to be able to run down through without breaking or twisting ankle.
I went out a little faster than I wanted, but at the same time I felt fine and was running very easy
My splits were consistently slower, which is what I purposely did, I knew that I went out a little to fast and needed to get in the 9:20’s to make this a real recovery run. It just took me a little longer than I expected.
I tried wearing the thinnest socks that I own, but at 3.6 miles I had to take my right sock off and go sockless the rest of the way. I am not real crazy about the way running sockless feels, but it seems as though that is something I will just have to live with.
It was a little too fast at the start for a good recovery run, I was in that gray zone too much.
