Early morning miles. 8 at tempo 9:44 so off by 3 seconds. Good enough to count.
I’ll say, the mugginess is back after the cool weekend. And that made my legs feel heavy. Robin got a weird leg cramp at mile 3 too that slowed us a little. But that’s the thing, there’s always something to push through. Tiredness, heat, life responsibilities. Success is not measured simply as pass/fail. Nor would I call 3 seconds off pace a failure by any means.
We got out there at 5:00am after working all week and facing a long day ahead and rocked it. That’s success.
It’s my last speed session of the plan. On to strength work outs. I’ve really enjoyed the speed sessions though. And I’m not excited about getting up earlier for the longer strength runs but I’m sure it will be good.
Today: 4 x 1200 and 800 recovery. I forget but I think the goal was 5:50 so slightly ahead to target.
And off topic, but I’ve been running in my sports bra more at home. Seems silly to sweat it out in a shirt at 6am when a) no one else is up and b) the other people on the house are a toddler and my husband. Seriously why did I let that stop me?
Anyway tomorrow is a rest day and I’m looking forward to an easy day and sleeping in!
