This was a total recovery run. My legs were shot from yesterday's run so I had to be very careful and make sure this was a recovery run and just concentrate on running nice and very easy and working on form. It was a 45 minute easy flat run at a 9:30 pace. It felt like I was walking at times but it was a very smart move as it's at these times that you can injure yourself. I call a recovery run a "blood flow run," because the purpose is to increase blood flood for healing and push any waste through you body that remained from the workout on the previous day.
I ran in the Evo I's which was a smart decision because I was better in-tune with my body and I could feel everything so I just had more control, and when you are tired and sore, you need control. I'm still working on my shoe rotation but the Evo's will be included.
Tomorrow is a much needed rest day then I have a hard race pace workout planned for Wednesday.
