Tuesday: 10.3 miles (7:11). Bombed workout. Plan was 4x5k@sub 16:00 with 1k recovery jog at sub 6 pace. My legs have felt dead yesterday, so I knew this would be tough. Ran just under a mile at 5:21 pace before calling it a day. When I'm running a workout like this, I need to be fresh enough to hit the times. If not, I need to scrap it and try something again in a day or two. Frustrating but it is what it is; 5.1 miles (7:01)
Wednesday: 4 miles (6:49); 12.3 miles with 11.5 medium progression. Plan was 3.5 miles at 6:05, 4 miles at 5:40, 4 miles at 5:15. Ended up at 21:07 (5:58, 6:05, 6:00, 3:04), 22:25 (5:40, 5:35, 5:36, 5:34), 20:52 (5:15, 5:13, 5:13, 5:11). Took a while until I felt smooth. Second section was easier than expected and I had to focus on the pace and push a little bit on the last portion. Felt really good at the end though.
Thursday: 4 miles; 12 miles (6:50)
Friday: 5.7 miles (6:55); Was planning on a shake-out in Huntsville but I got in too late. Weather started out in the mid 50s and worked to low/mid 60s. Wind was 10-12mph.
