Not so much!!! :)
I will just give you my workout. I did a 4 mile warm up cool down. Standard for me, as long as there is no snow on the ground. The work out was 2 mile repeats. First mile tempo, and 2nd mile Marathon pace. This usually is a pretty easy workout, as marathon pace really ends up being a recovery, and SEEMS easy.
A couple things to note. My tempo miles sure aren't very fast. I worry about that, because I want to have a "good for me" 5K time after all is said and done. I am planning on adding a day of running perhaps.
WU/CD was under 9:00 pace
I cracked on the 3rd one. The legs wouldn't move. I cannot even begin to imagine why that was. The workout seemed to be going good, and boom, nothing. So I worry about my slow tempo miles, as that isn't part of the plan. :) I worry about the last marathon pace mile too. Which btw was still quicker than last year's marathon pace, even though I didn't feel like I was moving. So I am better, but still got some work to do. I love the running work... at least when I finish the workouts.
On a bright note, as I had around 8.75 miles in, 6 of it at a faster than normal training pace, my legs felt fresh on the run home--cool down. They still were bouncing off the pavement. So on a 10 mile workout the legs were still firing. So perhaps I am gettting my distance legs, and speed to follow. :)
Do we always feel like a rookie when we run?? I feel I have so much to learn. I like it though. I like the challenge, and I think it is fun.
I think that is about it today. Well a few things. I ate 3/4 of a frozen pizza for dinner, and slept pretty good last night. I have no idea what that means though. :)
Now that is it!!! :)
Hope everyone has a Great and Awesome Day!!! :)
Love You All!!! :)
Oh, I am reading "Anne Frank" again. I don't know why. It is a great book. Can you imagine??
I am in a great mood this morning. I love hard workouts!! Especially when you can at least get some positives, even if I didn't nail it. I rarely nail it though do I?? Ha Ha!! As long as I nail it on race day. :) That is all anyone will ever remember. Onwards to that goal. :)
