Recovery Run - 7-21-09
I tried something a little different for my recovery run today. I was pressed for time and it was late in the afternoon after work so I did five miles around a new neighborhood. Although it has ponds and roads, there are no houses (or many cars).
This was a lot like running on a large track (3/4 mile each time around). I changed directions each mile to make it more interesting.
I started with a warm up mile (10:03) and increased my pace each mile for a progression run (9:42, 9:26, 9:14). I finished with a cool down mile (10:06).
This was a nice run and it was fun to change it up a little from my usual route and pace.
