      Your body and mind don't speak the same language. It's a funny little relationship they have. Nice run! Maybe let the body decide on the tempo. If today turns out to be a nice recovery, your foot might feel up for it. If not, more DM & wine :)

      yep, I think I had some trouble with that last month doing some barefoot. These exercises seem pretty simple, but there are actually a bunch of ways to irritate things, for me mainly knees. I had trouble with my knees getting achy last month from the splits squats, hip flexor stretch and the adductor stretch.

      love that funny attitude!!! BTW, I found out last month the adductor stretch put a lot of strain on my knees, so I made sure to do that one with some padding under knees. The hip flexor one is hard to get just the right muscles worked, but is very effective in a short amount of time.

      Force yourself to do 30 days of a really solid core for runners program and you might change your mind about the importance of it, even if you can't tell right away. I love Runners Connect, McMillan and Strength Running routines, but they can get a little overwhelming. The Kinetic Revolution 30 day challenge is created by a coach who is also a rehab therapist. It's a fantastic program and totally free, too.

      Success in disguise as failure. That run stuff is tricky. If your effort felt like a 6 out of 5 then even if paces were slower than you wanted and the run was tough, you got the proper aerobic training effects and succeeded, silly! The body was in a slow mood and you made it work when it didn't want to. Congratulations. This kind of run probably benefits you as much as the runs where you nail the pace, but it feels too easy.
