am: 55min, 8miles very slow and chill. The theme of today is recovery.
pm: 82min, 12miles, Same idea as the morning run. These super slow runs are necessary, but geez louise they can get boring!
am: 82min, best fasted run yet. Sadly though I stepped in quite the puddle and was left with a soggy shoe for a good 45min of this run. Sometimes ya just got grind through that shit though.
pm: 55min, My mp3 player broke, son of a gun! That was the only training partner I had left! Oh well. Looking forward to hitting up the track tomorrow for some 1000’s. Better have something speedy for dinner.
Workout 12x1000m (200m jog rest) @ UNC Track. 253, 253, 254, 255, 255, 255, 255, 256, 256, 256, 255, 255. (rest avg=70sec) Not as fast as last time, but still good. Pretty windy out there today. Worked hard, but tried to stay as relaxed as possible. Got to go shirtless, I enjoyed that, not sure anyone else was too keen on seeing the pasty Canadian rolling around the track. Good stuff, longer cool down to make it a solid 20miles on the day.
Workout, Long Progression. 6@6:15, 3@5:25, 6@5:20, 3@5:12, 1@7:00, 1@5:00. 2 cool down. 22miles 2hr 5min. All things considered that went pretty well. Kept it relaxed for the first part then tried to push at the end. Yesterday was certainly in the legs pretty good, but that was the point I guess (right coach?) It was ridiculously nice out. 23C during. Good stuff, 6th workout in the past 11days, I haven’t done that since University! Geez, gonna take a few easy days here now.
63min easy. That’s it, that’s all.
63min easy, yep that’s all. My legs are coming back to life!
10miles with 15min of 30sec on, 30 off. Ok ok, feeling rested, let’s get back at it!
Week in Review
Good week. Started off hard then coasted it on in. 110miles, but only 9runs. This training is weird.
