It was the second week of no workouts, and I wasn’t too upset when I heard that. It’s a chance to get miles up, get all runs and core/lifting in, and hopefully feel strong and healthy and ready for the higher intensity efforts.
I’ve been watching my heart rate on runs and trying to keep it in lower zones, avoid many big spikes. I want this time to really be about recovery and building, not getting in a hole. My easy runs (measured by HR) have gotten quicker throughout the week. That’s a good sign. And I’m getting antsy for workouts. Also a good sign; I was a bit worried last week when that wasn’t the case. More than anything, I’m tired of podcasts and remixes and I miss run friends… ready to start meeting the group!! (well, i hope i’m ready😬).
