Ran a nice rest run for 4 miles
Today was "rest day", and I ran four miles along the Jordan River Parkway. I took frequent walking breaks and ran at a slower pace and just enjoyed myself. My pace was around 11:30. The shade temperature during the run was in the mid 70s to low 80s (F). My wakeup HR was 51.
