I didn't really have any expectations or presumptions about today's run. I decided on a 7 mile route that could easily be cut shorter if I wasn't feeling it. Thankfully it felt pretty good. In fact I was able to find the speed I was missing during last weekend's race. Big difference - no ice!
|I'm probably just weird but I like how the distance, time, and pace are all nice round numbers.|
|It was a little hilly today|
Saturday's planned long run is a pace run so I'm going to try and get a few easy miles in tomorrow after work so I'm not stiff on Saturday. The pace run is going to be a 2 mile easy - 12 miles at pace - 2 mile easy. I think our plan is a 7:00 pace but I really need to figure out a schedule. 7 is faster than my intended full marthon pace but slower than my half marathon pace so....yeah..... kinda hard to decide. It doesn't help that I'm planning on racing a half marathon the first weekend of May and then pacing one the last week of May. I've been running higher miles like I would if training for a marathon but as I discovered last week I need to start working on speed for the half. Kind of the reason I pushed the pace a little during today's run. I guess I'll just see who's doing what in the morning and go from there. That usually seems to work out haha.
