My friend Sarah recently told me she’s actually read my blog before. I guess I hope to get good enough that someday people can draw inspiration by reading my running history on this blog, but it also reminds me to delete a few posts where there was a lack of a filter in my comments lol.
It was a rainy workout with some wind. But I didn’t really notice it. For some reason I just haven’t mastered mile repeats yet this season. This workout where we did 800s was a lot easier than last week where I had to slog through four laps, almost all on my own.
We did a 10 minute tempo to start. I started a bit fast and then settled in and averaged 5:05 pace (I was supposed to actually go a little slower, 5:10 pace). It felt really relaxed and I knew it would be a good workout. Then we took six minutes rest and did 5 by 800. These felt really good. About 3 minutes rest. I ran a 2:14 (they were claiming I went out in 29 which is NOT true haha), 2:17, then put on my flats for the first time in a while. I ran 2:15, 2:14, and then 2:12. I was surprised he called it at 5. Then I did weights but no power cleans since my knee hurt and Achilles a bit. Today I got my iron checked. I’ll get the results tomorrow.
