Easy is what easy does

Scheduled workout: 15 miles recovery. Target pace: none. Purpose: recovery.

Results: 15.6 miles in 2:12:00 (8:28 pace). HR 140 (63% maxHR).

What a pleasant run. I was expecting a Monday drag but got the Wednesday special instead. By the end of Loop #1 I was in an effortless state of mind. Easy was on the schedule and so it was. But today's easy was a little quicker than usual as the miles slid under the soles of my feet.

I'll take it. I'm handed enough hard days that I don't mind accepting a free pass now and again. The pace splits for each 5.2 mile loop:

Loop 1 9:03 per mile
Loop 2 8:30 per mile
Loop 3 7:50 per mile

Another 15 miles closer to 2:45.

I love the idea of "progressing" down with each of the loops. If you can keep 15 milers feeling this good you are certainly moving along.
