60 degrees and dry
The rain let up enough for Danny, Tom and I to get in a good run this morning. It was actually warmish. Can you say 60 degrees? I ran for 70 minutes and kept my HR low. 130-140. It seemed to make a difference. I was beat up and needed to recover. What beat me up? A combo of less sleep and some "too fast" social running. I always am fooled into thinking it's something else but it is almost always a accumulation of secret runs. Last Sunday was a slap in the face. The pace was right but it was harder than it should have been. The HRM is the best tool to rein me in. That and some extra sleep. I am beginning to feel much better.
