Saturday’s run called for 15 miles with 10x 1min @ 6:00/mi pace with 1 min recovery jogs in between.
I feel like today’s run was ummm…. stop and go. Literally. I hate when I stop so much, but it is oh, so appealing at the moment. Stop #1- dropped dog back at home after 3 miles, #2 stoplight, #3 restroom, #4 street crossing, #5 Street crossing, #6 Saw friend Dan, #7 saw friends Terri, Mark and Mark, #8 street crossing, #9 street crossing, #10 restroom (again! Geez!), #11 streetlight.
Really? Really? 11 times? Ughh. I know it is only for a few seconds each time, but I wonder what kind of affect it has on my running. What do you think? Do you stop or do you make yourself ‘hold-it’, run through lights, (Please say you don’t!!)etc? I would love to hear your input!
The 10×1:00 were difficult, but it felt good. I did them starting at mile 9.5 to practice running quickly on tired legs. Those recovery minutes sure go by fast though!
I did 3 recovery miles today- 56 miles for this week.
So I know blogs are boring without pictures! I am working on it! This week, I promise! 🙂 I am hoping to get some pics where I hill train- Mummy Mountain, and also of the greenbelt and canal where I do most of my general running. I also need to get my super-speedy running (and life) friends on here as well. *love*.
