Tempo

Wed: 7/1/09
AM: 3 w/u, 3 mile tempo (15:45) (8:00-7:45 for 1.5 loops), 4 c/d
Total = 10 miles
Despite banging out 18 miles yesterday I decided to give a workout a go this morning just to see where I was at. It was really humid but luckily the temps were in the low 70's. I was feeling a little tired and sluggish but overall not that bad. The first loop felt much better than last week and I came through about 3 seconds faster but, more importantly, feeling like I could hold it for the second loop. Felt like I maintained the pace pretty goo through the first half and then really tried to bring it home he last 1k or so. I was working really hard the last 800 meters and i am sure my legs were flailing all over the place. Pretty happy that I was able to run 15 seconds faster this week than last week in the same conditions but with 32 miles that last two days compared to 12. The progress continues!

Sounds like you had a great last two days of training. I hope your progress continues.
