Plan: Recovery Run (9:30 Min/Mile) **NO PACE/RELAX**
Great run with my hubby around the pond. Ran the first 5 miles with him, & the last mile on my own. Legs felt VERY heavy for the 1st 3 miles, but then opened up after that. Hot, but not that bad. Drank Gatorade at miles 3 & 6. Had my coconut water, wwbagel w peanut butter & honey, about 45 min before the run.
6 miles in 1:00:30 (avg pace 10:05) AVG HR 135 Cardiac Drift: 148
