This morning’s workout: 1 mile warm up, 4 x 1 mile with 1/2 mile recoveries, 1 mile cool down. 7.5 miles total.
Alarm set for 4:53am. Coffee pot set to automatical brew at 4:55am.
Drank some water, drank 1.5 cups (small mug!) of coffee, ate a banana, bathroom … headed out about 5:15am.
This was my 1st 4 x mile (it’s been 3 x mile up until this morning). My goal was simply “faster.” I wanted each mile to be hard. To hurt. To be holding on to finish.
The pieces are falling into place. 3.5 weeks until the HALF.
