Hello Old Friend, 2/2/20

It’s been a while since we’ve spent time together!  Nashua rail trail has been a steady place to do longer flat runs but I left it in June of last year to hit the trails and mountains.  Doing 80″ “long” Sunday runs adding 10 min a week – around the same time as last year but in Z3 vs. Z2 and @ 180 cadence (last year I didn’t start using metronome until spring).  Keeping up the cadence adds pressure for sure!

Lesson learned last year:  You will always be tired at the end of a workout.  You will always think, if I’m this tired at this distance/time, how will I ever make it for as long as I need to go….. but you will.  Doing intervals, doing hills will never be “easy” but your recovery after will be shorter.  Last year, I would have been absolutely crippled for the rest of day with my lower back issues – mostly resolved!

Progress.
