Reverse Training Run For A 25K Recovery

So there’s always the question of what do you do for running after you’ve finished a race, especially if you been on a training plan that ends with that race. Everyone needs to figure out what is best for themselves but one option is to reverse your training plan for a bit. Coming off of the 25K, and still being sore the day after, I decided that following the reverse training plan tactic might be best.

I honestly can’t explain how it is that I ended up hitting the crazy pace other than it just felt right and I didn’t feel like I was killing myself. Actually, as my run went on my pace got faster. It feels pretty good to have exceeded my goal in a race then turn around and do this sort of training run.
