Believe it or not I am getting used to this idea that running slower is okay to do and is not a sign of weakness or injury. Wrapping my head around that huge philosophical shift was tough, but finally I am getting it.
Today while I was running slow, I did work on my midfoot landing and keeping my arm loose and close to my body, while running a consistent pace.
The first two laps were purposely real slow and then the last two, I just ran comfortably, while trying to pick-up my cadence a little.
Nice recovery run after yesterday’s pretty tough interval workout.
