Speedwork at the track this morning! I ran:
- 1 mile warmup
- 5 min @ 9:34-9:45 pace then 2 min slow
- ^^repeat 4 times
- 1 mile cool down
That’s 4.65 in the books. It took effort, yet I felt strong throughout. My legs, a little fatigued from strides on Tuesday and strength training yesterday, held up with no problem.
I haven’t gone shoe shopping yet, so I’ve made due rotating my old pairs. I have another long run coming up soon. In fact, it’s supposed to be Sunday, but I’m flying to Colorado for the week. I’ll skip the official Saturday workout and do Sunday’s 7-miler instead. Based on my travel schedule I may basically skip one whole week of my plan, or at least delay it. Having been to Aspen before, I know it takes a few days to get used to the elevation, making exercise of any type very difficult.
I’ll play it by ear (or breath) and look for blogs about my adventures there.
