Saturday = Long Run Day. My goal was to do 17 miles and that is what I ended up with. I could have gone further, but was short on time as my son had a football game this morning and I was eager to watch him. Not that I would have gone much longer, but 18 or 19 would have been perfect. No regrets.
No problems with recovery either which is quite nice. I changed my diet and lifestyle significantly over time and I am sure the quick recovery is a direct result of this. In addition I am running 90% of my runs following the MAF method and that makes a big difference, too. With MAF you run based on heart rate (I am using a Garmin 630 with heart rate monitor (affiliate link – thank you for supporting the blog)) and I love how easy it is on the body. No soreness and fast recovery.
Lately my MAF efforts have been stalling and a couple of changes are being implemented. I have shifted my diet to primal eating following the steps in Mark Sisson’s book (affiliate link – thank you for supporting my blog) and I am also doing a keto cleanse following Maria Emmerich’s book (affiliate link – thank you for supporting this blog).
