Location: Pasadena, CA
Temperature: Mostly sunny, 70 degrees
Type of Run: Easy
Length: 6.04 miles + 4 sprint strides
Type of route: some flat, some gradual inclines and declines with two hill climbs and three hill descents
Time: 43 minutes, 10 seconds
Pace Per Mile: 7:09
Average Heart Rate: 138
Reason for Run: This was an easy run on the lower mileage side meant to be done after a long run. You want to take it easy the day after a long run to give your legs a chance to recover. The sprint strides are meant to help increase leg turnover and raw speed.
How did I feel? Better than yesterday. My legs were a little worn from the long run but other than that I was physically and mentally better. I took it easy today and purposely tried to keep my heart rate on the low side because it would keep my pace on the easier side. It was a good bounce back run although it was on the more humid side again today.
