Training Log; 4 miles

Today ended my 10-day streak of no running. I don't know why, but I just really felt like I needed some time off. And I didn't feel bad about it at all, either. But today I decided to get back out on the road and felt great.
  • Total mileage: 4
  • Total time: 30:41.37 (30.683)
  • Average mile time: 7:40 (7.67)
  1. 7:55.08 (7.912)
  2. 7:31.48 (7.512)
  3. 7:39.12 (7.65)
  4. 7:35.69 (7.58)

I felt great the entire run (granted I wasn't pushing AT ALL!) and actually felt like I was doing everything correctly. I focused on running style, intentionally lifting and lowering my legs and pushing into the ground with the balls of my feet, and I really tried to use my big muscles. It felt really fluid and I wasn't at all uncomfortable. I don't think I kept my chest up the whole time (which I realized after), so I'll definitely need to work on that next time. But still, for not having done anything for 10 days, I'm pretty happy!
