Interesting – today’s run is not too different from the last one, but felt harder! I was tightening up and slowing down at the end. I changed a few things:
- I choose a slightly longer route today, but still short of 11 miles.
- The oxbow ditch was full, so I soaked my feet at about 15 minutes fording it.
- I wear my old vibrams, partly for the gravel steamboat ditch leg and partly to make sure they’re still up to the job.
- I do shorter intervals: 6 minutes fast, 4 minutes slow. (I always warm up with 10 minutes slow).
Despite dogging at the end I’m still pretty happy with where I am, and having fun experimenting.
