Scroll down 2 posts to see about my last mile repeat session
My “plan” has me doing hard workouts on Tuesdays. August 16 was the last time I did mile repeats. Other Tuesdays has me doing 6 miles with 4 miles of tempo. I was nervously excited about trying mile repeats again. I was hopeful to see an improvement; nervous in my own higher expectations of myself; nervous in the fact that except for this past Saturday, the past few weeks have sucked running wise.
The last time I did the workout, my miles were 8:04, 7:30, 7:16. This time, I managed to pull out 7:47, 7:19, 7:09. That was a confidence builder that I needed!
Saturday’s long run was the best run I’ve had since Andrew was born – 10 miles average 7:59 pace.
Before Saturday, the past few weeks really have sucked … I’ve felt slow and heavy on every run. My plan has me running 5 days a week, but I haven’t run more than 4 once. And 1 week only 3 days. I’m hoping I’ve turned a corner!
