In an effort to somewhat include a bit of speed or to get into the 80/20 trot, I started to include 6×1 minute faster intervals in my easy runs. I also cut today short so it was only 30 minutes. Hope that all works out!
Sunrise was lovely again and I’m looking forward to a nice long run tomorrow.
Theoretically I have another week of 44/88/132 in front of me and I feel like I’ve adapted quite well. We’ll see how easy tomorrow feels, but if it goes on like that I will increase to 50 minutes for my easy runs after recovery week. I want to thank unironedman, as he had made me aware that vacation includes running as well and I credit taking time off from daily running during August, for making me love running even more.
I also had a look at my fitness data and I can now really see how consistency and recovery trump speed.
I think I am finally getting the hang of it. Winter here I come!
