Day 3 – My Ultra Journey
Easy 4 miles today. Legs are tired but not real sore from previous couple days of punishment. I focused on keeping it slow and having a relaxed mid foot strike. Just wanted to get the blood flowing and I’ve read many times and places that a few slow miles on recovery days speeds muscle repair.
I’ve also been trying to get off the pavement and get more mileage on grass or trails. I want my first ultra to be a trail race so i need to get used to being off road.
Time to start shopping for trail running shoes.
