Oh my lord my legs were sore. 6 strides yesterday...maybe 75 seconds of fast running...I think I may have sprinted some by accident. It was so hard to keep my legs turning over. Also hr was high for the pace. I decided to just run it however it felt easiest and quit staring at the watch. No metric was gonna capture the difficulty of this run. Perhaps immediate pain isn't an appropriate proxy for stress here. Maybe the pain was my legs working through the tightness/soreness. Glad to shake them out
