So yesterday I did not run but planted the rest of my trees. I put in a total of 200 saplings this year. I filled in the wind breaks and planted several nut tree species. I so enjoy watching them grow! The rains have been good and Spring is busting out all over. The Bluebirds are very active building the nest, the grass will have to be mowed next week....closer to Summer!!!!
I did get a quality run in today. My weekly speed work. Totals were 6.85 treadmiles and 62 minutes. 1 mile warm and cool-2 min recover between each segment
1X3K @ HM pace-7.1mph
1X2K @ 10K pace-7.5mph
1X1K @ 5K pace-7.9mph
1X800m @ 3K pace-8.1mph
Just for fun I kicked the mill up to 8.5 mph at the end of the workout.....to think I used to run 5K's at that pace!? I held on for about 40 seconds!
Well, tomorrow an easy GA run of 6-8 miles. So far this week only three runs but lots of miles! 20, 9.5, and 6.8. Pretty good. Race next Saturday!!! Peace!
