Berlin Marathon Training Week #7 Day 3 A Recovery Run

Location: Pasadena, CA.

Temperature: Sunny, 85 degrees

Type of Run: Easy

Length: 6.04 miles + 5 sprint strides

Type of route: Some flat areas with some gradual inclines and declines plus one minor and small hill climb

Time: 42 minutes, 46 seconds

Pace per mile: 7:05

Average heart rate: 138

Reason for Run: This was an easy recovery run meant to be done after a long run. The day after a long run is when I usually run the shortest mileage of the week. This is to give my legs some rest. The pace is meant to be easy and comfortable. Sprint strides were done after the run. The goal is to help improve leg turnover and work on speed.

How did I feel? Decent. I was a little tired in general. Plus, my legs were a little worn out and slightly achy from the 17 miles the day before. This was a normal feeling after a long run and I didn’t think there was any reason to worry. Your legs will feel that way after spending so much time running the day before.

Running With You,
