after a much-needed rest day, it was time for the “long, slow run” today.
with the training schedule being used, today’s distance is actually the same as Friday’s. I stuck to a relatively plodding pace, and also opted to do the running on the local streets rather than the treadmill.
I think I’ll aim to do that for the sunday runs from now on, to build up the experience of running on the roads rather than a treadmill. the weather is (generally) good for early morning outdoor runs currently.
