However, I feel great! A 10 mile slow, easy run will do that for you :-)
I checked my running log to see what 10 mile routes I had done in my marathon training. They were all on the Rockville Millennium Trail - which I need to drive to. I did not want to deal with driving the car this morning, so I plotted out a new 10-mile route (OK..it was 10.5 miles when all was said and done) which took me over to the Fallsgrove neighborhood - and onto the Millennium Trail for a mile - and then back.
My plan was to keep my heart rate under 150 as much as possible. The past few runs I have let my heart rate get too high...I wanted to ensure that I ran this one with a bit more discipline. I succeeded as my average HR over the full 10.5 miles was 150 bpm. My pace was slow and steady at 11:24/mile.
I definitely felt "the burn" in my legs as the miles passed. I also felt it in my arms and chest as I finished another week of the push ups plan yesterday with sets of 11, 13, 9, 9 and 15 push ups (57 in all!). But I don't feel too sore right now - just refreshed and ready to take on the world today!
