Looking back on my numbers from last week, my workouts didn’t look much different than when I’m preparing for a race. What’s up with that? I was treating it like a rest week.
I realize it's all a head game. Not having an agenda for the day when I step outside makes me feel like I’m slacking somehow. And without a pace/distance expectation for myself (and a constant checking of the Garmin), my runs seemed like they were easier too. Does this happen to you?
