Well, I screwed today’s normal swim day to a run day. And remember yesterday when I said that I didn’t need to run fast…yeah, I screwed that up too… oh well. But check out my first mile time. Yes, sir or ma’am that is an official PR time for the mile on an unofficial course!
I thought for sure that it was going to be one of those days where you think you are running fast only to realize you aren’t. Well, today was NOT one of those days… I knew I was running fast and I thought, what the hell. So hence the PR time, but I paid for it in the last mile. I didn’t have enough steam to make that mile count.
This tells me that I am not quite where I want to be for my December 5k but it does tell me that I am getting faster and more endurance at a faster speed. I have 3 weeks until the 5k, so I probably have 15 days of effective speed training or rather 2 speed sessions left. Next week, I’ll do a track workout, hopefully around a 7 min mile but not as fast as today. I can already tell that my legs are sore, but I will run a slow 4 tomorrow and swim on Thursday and take Friday off before the race on Saturday Morning.
