We hit the track last night. Um, why didn't anyone remind me how hard that is?? SHEESH, and you call yourselves(f) (a) friend(s). Ha ha!! Here was the workout: 3-10:00's @ 2 minute recovery, or 4-10:00's. I, for the first time, only did 3. I actually almost thought of skipping the whole workout, which would have been a first. I didn't know if I had anything for speed work.
All you need to know, is I think I am close. Track = knowing your speed. My mile splits on the 10:00's were 7:07, 7:10, and 7:15, although on the 7:15 I kicked it in the last 1-1/2 minutes to finish further than the other ones. (I knew I was only doing 3) If you recall my Thanksgiving 5K my splits were 7:10, 14:20, and a what I think would have been a sub: 22:00 5K if the course wasn't shortened.
Things going in my favor are the race will be on a Saturday MORNING. I will taper. My legs won't be obliterated like they are now. I will also get another track workout in. Like I said I am close. Oh and I won't be racing after back-to-back 6 mile runs. Also at work I walk on concrete floors all day. I used to think that was bad for me, but now I think it (FINALLY) has made me stronger. blessing in disguise if you will. I'll be off those for a good 18 hours.
The track is a beast, and the first session back sure is not a smooth transition. SHEESH!!
Hope you have a great day!!
Time for me to brush and floss. ;)
