The perfect recovery run after yesterday's hard run . . . nice easy 35 min. run. The first 10 minutes was slow as my muscles were pretty sore; no doubt I did a good amount of muscle tearing from yesterday's run. I only wanted to run to clear the waste from my body (it's working).
This was a classic mind vs. body battle and fortunately I was disciplined enough to follow my body. The mind wanted me to keep running but I knew my body was in healing mode and not recovered from yesterday so I made sure to not run more than 30 minutes. The danger is after a hard workout, your muscle memory the next day remembers running fast and will revert to that mode so you need to make sure to do what's right from your body.
