Running by Feel and not Heart Rate

I took to the trail again tonight after work with a plan of not taking the pace too hard. Last night my run was slow and steady and about 30 seconds slower than my slow EZ pace, so I was hoping I would be able to take the pace down to normal levels without bringing back the soreness from the kickboxing class that keeps lingering around.

My first mile was just over 7:30 which is a tad too fast so I dropped it down to 7:45 and eased off the pace as the 5 mile run came to an end. I averaged about 7:50 per mile which is just about where I wanted to be. The most important thing is that I felt great and the run was very smooth.

I finally feel like I am shaking off the cobwebs that have built up over the past few weeks of me not training. If I can keep this up I will be in good form for the 5k races that will pop up towards the end of the summer!
