Subject: RE: Any other college runners feel like they race every morning????
Let me ask you a question: Why?
What benefits would you gain from running 6:30 that you don't get from running 7:30. It is a recovery day, right? So I am maintaining a heart rate that provides an aerobic stimulus for longer than you even if we run the same number of miles. Also, my run actually lowers my blood's pH while yours...probably not so much. Who will run faster in the workout tomorrow that more directly translates to race performance while still having run more miles yesterday?
The problem is just that people have a mental block. Many people are afraid that if they run a pace that some joggers run then they will suddenly become slow in races like them, or even worse, their reputation/pride might be hurt if they are seen running this slow.
The male ego keeps most guys from running very slow, and most will tell you that it is way to slow to run 7+ minute miles, but none of them can explain why.
