Today I had an easy 8K to recover from my 8K fartlek yesterday. That was good; my legs were tired!
I tried not to worry about the time. Yes, I was slow. BUT my foot felt fine and my hamstring had pain of just 1-2/10, the usual. It's still a bit more tender today (and was tender yesterday afternoon) since the speed work, but it's within a reasonable tolerance and I'm not concerned.
Calvin and Sugar came along, and so the conversation was lively (think 11-yo topics, though!) and the weather was sooooo nice at 17.8C (64F!). There's a storm coming so it'll cool off, but for today it was super.
Total time 53:35 for 6:42/km with ave HR 142.
