The most advanced thing you can do is listen to your body. What does it need today? A recovery run? an easy run with a friend? Extra snuggles in bed? a bath? yoga? Do whatever it is your body wants...within reason. Make sure the effort is easy and relaxed, don't get carried away (running with your friend who happens to be hyper-competitive, doing COREPOWERCARDIO Yoga because the Yin class looked boring...make good choices, yo). 60 minutes of whatever it is you decide to do is PLENTY. And remember, we are not in training so you can do whatever you want.
if you ARE in fact, in training you still need to make good choices. You can blow months of hard work with one bad choice (esp if it leads to injury!), so let's not do that.
HR stays <140 for first two miles. Then stop, and give me 6 accelerators (50 meters, or 30 seconds long) with one minute of rest in between each. Then finish out with easy effort running.
