HM pace work

   I believe in the "SAID" principle. Specific Adaptions to Imposed Demands.
 I have learned over the years this is ever so true! You cannot train slow and expect to run fast! Today I put in some HM pace work. 8:34's to be precise. A gradual warm-up for 30 minutes, then 3X5 min @ HM with a 5 min rest between each segment (10 mpm), then 30 minutes @ HM resulting in 10 miles in 1:31:19. A very good effort! I really feel ready for this upcoming race!
  No clue as to what I am capable of...been so long since I raced! So tomorrow I will run an easy recovery run, Friday may be a 10K time trial....depends on body, and saturday abouty 30 minutes of HM pace. Have a great day!!!
