Yesterday, I woke up to a heart rate that was back in the normal range for me. It was all I needed to give me the green light for a harder workout. I was crunched for time so I cut down my recovery intervals since I felt they were too long last time. I also increased my pace on my first interval. Turns out, that wasn’t a great combination. I wasn’t able to increase my pace at each interval as I intended. Lesson learned. I ran 4 miles to total with a half mile warm up and a little over a mile cool down. Today I ran a one mile recovery run at sunrise. It was absolutely beautiful today. I walked an additional mile to enjoy the scenery.
