Conclusion: Great week, I made my running goals! Knees never felt better, thanks to cross training? Ave heart rate is also going down drastically as I am quickly recovering my fitness. I was surprised that even though I was tired and didn’t feel like running on Friday, I was able to punch through hills with much more stamina without raising my heart rate too high. I guess what that running expert said about how “you gotta run slow to to run fast” is becoming a reality for me.
