Beat the Heat Recovery Run

A scorcher on tap for today and tomorrow. Was glad to get out this morning before the heat started to build up. Ran barefoot on the local athletic fields at a recovery pace. I'm a bit sore from yesterday's race so it felt good to stretch everything out and loosen up a bit with a slow run.

With tomorrow being another hot one, I plan on a short easy run (5-7 miles) and then would like to run long sometime before the weekend. With that long run, I'll feel pretty confident that I've done enough in prep for the Brookvale 50k at the end of the month and will start tapering down.

Ran 3.2 miles @ 9:13/mile pace.
Grass fields.
Lower 70s, partly sunny.
Barefoot, shorts, short sleeved shirt.
