Crushed both my 12x600 and 10x800 workouts this week, long run tomorrow and scrimmage next week friday. Cross Country is about to be in full swing. This is most of our team at camp.
for the run that didn’t go as planned today. I’m so tired of doing runs by myself, mileage is so much easier with a mutually suffering buddy. :\
Had a good tempo this morning. Hit my paces dead on.
Aaand now I’m gonna veg out and watch netflix until my shakeout.
Good for only my second workout of the summer, starting to progress really quickly now, I felt solidly comfortable until the 3 minuter.
654321, cutdown recovery.
6 @ 5:50 pace
5 @ 5:50 pace
4 @ 5:49 pace
3 @ 5:51 pace
2 @ 5:43 pace
1 @ 5:25 pace
Not too shabby, I was feeling kinda mediocre though, especially at the beginning.
5x3minutes on, 1 minute off @ 5:45 avg pace on, 8 minute pace off.
I got a little carried away on the last one and broke it in half with a 30 second jog because I don’t need to be working super hard in workouts yet and that’s definitely what I felt like I was doing.
Another 8.6 miles in the books. 6:45 pace
Another hour run @6:55 pace. Just putting hay in the barn as they say.
When you have a terrible run it ruins your mood for the rest of the day and pretty much guarantees you’re going to have a bad day.
