What a Difference a Day Makes

Ran 5.0 miles @ 7:30/mile pace.

I felt so much better today than compared to yesterday. My legs still feel far from fresh, but I expected to be a bit more beat up from yesterday's run. A lot of patience is definitely required when recovering from a major race (or races), but an encouraging sign today was that I felt progressively better during today's run which was reflected in my splits.

Mile 1: 7:48
Mile 2: 7:45
Mile 3: 7:37
Mile 4: 7:30
Mile 5: 6:48

Definitely quite a leap there in mile 5, but I was feeling good so I felt comfortable pouring it on a bit. The rest of the splits were a natural, subconscious increase. I'm doing a speed workout tomorrow (Yasso 800s).
