Day off yesterday, and a day at a recovery pace and short distance today to allow ample recovery from the bigger runs this past weekend. Will continue this plan for the next few weeks while I gradually work the mileage back up.
Have been thinking lately that incorporating speed or tempo workouts once a week would be beneficial. People have different theories that are often contradictory on the benefits of speed workouts for ultra training, but I think for me they definitely help. Will start to implement them in the next week or two. Would like to continue to get used to the new heel lift and allow my body to adjust first.
Ran 5.6 miles @ 8:34/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - N/A (accidentally left the strap on my desk at home)
Paved roads, patches of slush.
Mid 20s, mostly sunny.
Long pants, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
