55 minute run (5 min. barefoot warm-up) with last 2.5 miles at 10k pace on trails. I'm always amazed at the ability of the human body to recover. 2 days ago I could barely run a 9:00 minute per mile pace, and today I'm back to the 6:00 minute per mile pace range. As always, the key is allowing your body to recovery when it needs to recover so the slow running provides several benefits as it allows the body to recover and allows you to maintain fitness but avoid the cardinal sin of pushing hard on days you need to recover.
