Round and round she goes....

So I made it to the track by around 9:50am, a beautiful day with temps in the eighties and sunny skies. My plan was to run as many MP miles as I could. I did a 1.5 mile warm up and began the work-out. At this time I had the track to myself. I am having some trouble finding the MP. Too fast, too slow! First mile was a 9:01 which would work! Then an 8:38, 8:39, 8:37, after these four miles I decided I'd had enough. My legs are tired. I pushed on through and did a 1.5 mile cool down. During this workout a young man came on the track and started running. I passed him three times...felt good!
The heel is in the ice bucket, now. I'm still able to run but it is not healed completely. I still need to run 19 more miles this week! Plus I'm planning on racing Saturday. So how do I structure the 19? Saturday will serve as speed work and I'd like to get around 5 total. So that leaves 14 for Thurs and Fri. Thurs could be 6-8 easy, Fri could be the same. I will have to play it by ear.
Totals- 7.01/ 1:06:08/ 9:26 avg. Feel like napping....Peace!
