Workout: 3.9 Mile Easy Run

Distance: 3.92 Miles (click for route)
Time: 42:38
Avg. Pace: 10:51/mile
Type: Easy run
Weather: Hot (80s), humid

Very slow easy run tonight. I used my heart rate monitor again and forced myself to stay in a fairly slow heart rate zone (60-70% HRR according to the Karvonen Method), except for the last 0.9 miles or so where I allowed myself to go a little faster. It felt like I was going soooooooo sloooooooooow (and I was, between 10:50 and 11:30/mile during the first 3 miles, and only about 9:30-9:50 for the last 0.9 miles). Supposedly this is best for recovery, and today was a "junk mile" day anyway.

Next Planned Workout: Tomorrow (Thurs. 8/13), 6x400m Speed Intervals
