Yesterday was my regular 45 minute Thursday tempo session. I couldn't get away until well after dark, so I donned a long sleeve shirt (for the first time this year) and my headlamp and headed up the San Diego Creek trail. Despite feeling fatigued and having tired legs, once I got about 5 minutes into the run, I felt pretty good - in fact - real good. Seemed the further I went, the stronger I felt. I settled into a comfortable pace, watched my heart rate and finished my run. Final stats - 4.7 miles, average HR - 146 (83% MHR).
Today is my day of rest - so I'll see you all again late Saturday or early Sunday!
