I would love someone with more experience than me to enlighten me.
Whenever I run a long run (e.g. 14-20miles) and I run the next day my runs are consistently better, faster and I feel a lot better when I'm running. My mile splits are spot on and my pace is consistent, my breathing easy and I feel generally a lot better.
I know my legs are tired - but shouldnt that mean that i'm slower and feel more achy? Rather than going faster and feeling refreshed?
When I run on 'fresh' legs - i'm always slower and hating the first 2-3miles whilst i'm 'getting into it'. My mile splits are always out rather than being consistent like they are when i'm running.
Does anyone have any ideas?
