The first run of my rest week
This week is my resting week in which I will do reduced mileage and my rest pace. I ran 4 miles this morning, a reduction of 1 mile (20%). I let my body set its pace, which was 10:30 - 11:00. The temperature was 76 (F) when I left home and 86 (F) when I returned, and it was a pleasant day to be outside. There were quite a few people on the Parkway. My wakeup HR was 53.
