How to Go From Fast to Slow in One Day

Switch shoes.

Wear your heavy trainers.
The ones you thought were great when you first got them.

Today I went for an easy 4 mile recovery run. And to make sure I ran slowly, I wore my Karhu's. Yup. They were slow alright. To the tune of a minute to a minute and a half.

And they were HEAVY.
And they made me run in a forward position - not as comfy as the upright position.
By mile 3, my legs were really tired.

I'm wondering if, in the end, this was really a recovery run at all, I had to work so hard. Sheesh.
