Recovery/Easy Run

Ran 4.5 miles barefoot on the local high school's athletic fields. Really like doing the recovery runs barefoot for a few reasons:

A) The temptation to run fast is lessened, as I'm generally very cautious (at least these days) while barefoot running.
B) The muscle groups are stretched out more, and generally feel more relaxed afterwards.
C) The bottom of my feet get massaged. Ahhhhhhh.

Ran 4.5 miles @ 8:37/mile pace.
Grassy fields.
Mostly flat.
Upper 70s, partly cloudy.
Barefoot, shorts, short sleeved shirt.
