Run Description: 1 hr 45 min, out and back run (Optional porgression if you choose)
This run is designed to be super easy footing, flat and on a soft surface - will help give a break to the legs after Saturday's adventure. Simply run out half way and turn back (or you could do two shorter out and backs if you want to have access to the cars sooner). Resist the temptation to go fast from the get go....if anything go SLOW to start and gradually let your body warm up to a relaxed effort pace. If you are feeling the need to let the legs open up some and want a challenge then on your return trip you could start to gradually increase your pace...making this more of a progression run. Idea behind that is to increase your pace per mile gradually....allowing your body to adjust to the quicker pace without taxing your system too soon. A suggestion might be dropping anywhere from 5-20sec per mile, with the whole premise that you are indeed dropping the time....don't go too fast, then slow up and then go fast again....nice and steady increase of pace if you are wanting to try this. Otherwise, simply enjoy the easy footing and a relaxed run!
