I stayed on the roads for my entire long run this morning. I figure I need to get my legs and feet used to the pounding. I started with 10 miles keeping HR under 140 then ran miles ll and 12 at mp. I'm calling 7:00/mile mp for now although I could hardly hold that pace for 2 miles today. Then did 5 more miles with HR under 140.
It felt good to run faster again, but I was surprised how hard it felt. The good news was my HR dropped right back down under 140 within a minute or 2 so carciovascularly I'm fine, I just need to get my legs ready for the faster running.
