I felt like crap when I started moving… it was humid and hot, and my legs were dead and stiff. But I always just know I have to wait 3 or 3.5 miles and it’ll get a bit better.
I decided it’d be slow and relaxed. Mile 2 was Harlem Hill. then the run took a life of its own.
Is there such a thing as a “progression recovery run“? Because if so, I just did it!
PS: I love how the hamstrings hurt after a race. It tells me I am actually pulling the legs up and using the hammies even in a slow run. Great feedback!
