A good Summer day today with temps back in the 80's coupled with sun and humidity...YES!! It's great for training!!
So I've decided to race in a 5K this Saturday. It's for a good cause and not supposed to be hilly...."gently rolling" is part of the description. With that decision I need to adjust my training. I am fresh off a debilitating injury so I will cut miles instead of add. Right now I'm at 16.2 for the week, so with a Thursday run and Saturday race I will probably come up with 24+total for the week. That is acceptable considering the efforts so far this week.
Today I did my structured Fartleks: 8 x 1min @ 3K pace..1 min rest between, with one mile warm/cool.
I felt like a road warrior today! Conquer the roads! Take the hills and own the downs! I actually had some impressive times for me.....I believe I can break 24...you'd think?
Here are the pace/splits for my archives: 6:55, 7:04, 7:23, 7:02, 6:56, 7:23, 7:10, 6:59. The last interval I pretended I was kicking it in holding off a challenge. I had fun!!!
These times signify an improvement!!! This should give younger folks hope!! We can still get better!!!
Hope your week is going well!!! Peace!
