If you start out though on your easy 45, and everything feels awesome after a mile or so, pick it up! But if you plan to go easy then you won't be disappointed. That's what I always think...
What kind of dumbass tries to do a tempo run the day after a 12 miler...?
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
I think that's probably what I will end up doing. I'm so annoyed with myself, though. What kind of dumbass tries to do a tempo run the day after a 12 miler...?
What sort of arch issues are you dealing with?
Arch support in all shoes, running, work, walking around the house. I have flat feet, and this helps a lot.
Physical Therapy exercises to stretch out the calf, it is apparently very tight. Also to strengthen the feet and ankles, and even hips to just stabilize my running form throughout.
Meh...that sucked. No way was I gonna be able to do any sort of speedwork.
