Mystery Coach's Axiom Number Two reared its head today.
"How easily you recover from a workout is a better indication of your condition than the workout itself."
I was dragging a bit for this morning's 16 miles, especially for miles 5 through 10. After that I felt like I ran through the fatigue a bit and came out relatively fine on the other side. Still, I find myself wishing I'd run those 1000's yesterday between 3:25 and 3:30 as ordered instead of drifting down to between 3:20 and 3:25.
Damn, that Mystery Coach is right again.
Training: 16 miles, 1:54:10, 7:08 pace
