Finishing Up a 31 Mile Week
I woke up later than usual around 7'ish and had some banana bread before I went for an easy five mile run. The best easy runs are those I do the day after a hard running day. I don't think pace matters on easy runs, but on these days I feel like I deserve to go slowly - like I earned it. The last couple of miles weren't easy - it was so hot. I looked forward to the short stretches of shade on the road and the cold chocolate milk I'd drink when I was finished.
