Slacking On Purpose

Ran 4.6 miles @ 7:38/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 152/168
Paved roads.
Mostly flat.
Mid 70s, sunny.

Today's run is nothing much to write much about. Just went along at a comfortable pace. I've been feeling a bit sluggish with my running lately, so I've decided to really take it easy this week. With that plan in mind, today was probably a bit too fast.

I have a big mountain run planned for this weekend. Based on how I've been feeling, I'm betting that I'll be well recharged in time for that, and subsequently be able to recover within a normal time frame. Until then, nothing but 4-7 mile runs this week at an easy pace.

A huge congrats to my bud Devon Crosby-Helms for placing third woman in the Headlands 50K, despite not feeling up to par. Way to go Dev, you rock!

Thanks for the shout out Jamie and for the good thoughts on race day. Starting out exhausted and going from there is an incredible experience and I learned so much about what the body can do.... now I am up for some of that slacking on purpose going up to Worlds!
