Recovery Run 7ks

A rainy Centennial Park greeted me tonight. It was fantastic with a nice Southerly blowing, rain falling and No Humidity.
Stayed mostly on the grass and ran slow enough for small children to keep up.

Ran 7.2ks in 45:12. Average pace of 6:16 per klm. The legs were really stiff from yesterdays run and my right hip wasn't feeling great either. Enough whingeing!

Gotta love those recovery runs! I've been incorating them in my training and I think they really do make a difference. Do you find they seem to shake out the niggles?

I read recenty that a short and slow recovery run is as good as a massage. Not sure if its true. Its cheaper though :-)

6:16/k is almost easy, even for me!

No humidity? My mate at the BOM said it ranged between 73 and 90% on Monday.
