Back to the basics

May 8, 2007


I feel fully recovered from the marathon I ran 10 days ago. Over this time, rather than following any type of routine, I have returned to a style of running which is based upon perceived effort, specifically, moderately hard (i.e., easier than a tempo pace but still hard enough to break a sweat).

This reminds me of how I used to run, several years ago, before I had learned about the more technical aspects of training, such as tempos, intervals, striders, fartleks, hills, pace, cadence and splits.

Today: 5.5mi, 38:13 (av. 6:57/mi)

p.s. now be a dear and fix me a drink, would you?
