A nice half-hour rest run
My wakeup HR was down to 51, so that was a good sign. I felt pretty good during the morning, but when I started to run, I could tell I was tired. I cut my run in half. I timed myself during the last mile. I finished the first half of the mile in 5:30. That was too fast for a rest run, so I slowed down and finished the full mile in 11:20. That was a pretty good pace for a rest run.
