Mossy Log

Yet another recovery run done and in the books. This one was easier at the start and a bit harder at the finish. Not so much that I couldn't do it or felt slower than normal, the hard part was keeping it in the right heart rate zone. Outside of that, it was an easy run with a podcast playing in the background.

Nothing exciting on the run was seen or heard but sometimes that's good.

Just a mossy log on the trail.

Temps were 30F with moderate winds so wind chill was a factor but not a big one. Sun was out in the sky.

Fluids and Fuel:
Before the run I had some coffee and a growling stomach from last night's bad food choices. I ate a small coffee cake bar thingy and it helped quell the distress. During the run I had just plain water. Recovery was rather weak with just coffee and yogurt. No real food until lunch.

Aches and Pains:
None really.

Wore shorts, pants, shorts, thermal shirt, long sleeve shirt, wind breaker, winter hat, balaclava, neck gaiter, and gloves. Also carried my knife and cell phone.

Heart Rate:
Had an easy time staying in zone for the first mile despite my faster than expected pace. Second mile was a little harder to stay in zone so I just took more walking breaks.

Mile 1 - 13:40 (AVG HR 131)
Mile 2 - 14:07 (AVG HR 135)
Finish - 27:48
AVG HR - 133
MIN HR - 82
MAX HR - 163
RHR - 60
