Day 2 Week 3 – Recovery

Found out what happen when I ran too fast during speed intervals.  The body took longer to recover.  My legs were tired this morning.  Guess they were still recovering from yesterday’s speed workout.

Today is supposed to be an easy workout day.  The schedule has 6 miles easy (9:00 to 9:45).  But my times are as follows: 9:38, 10:02, 10:07, 9:59, 10:16, 10:01.  Despite my efforts to keep the same pace, my times are slower.

Also, to work around the oppressive heat, I have been getting up earlier.  Running earlier.  This is to take advantage of the cooler temperatures in the morning.

Do you have any recovery tips?

      Thanks Ms B for the recovery tips. They are all sound advises. I did not sleep well last night. That may have something to do with the poor recovery as well.
