This morning was just a two mile run. You would think that after doing six miles for a long run that a two miler would be easy. For some reason that wasn't so. It takes a while for me to find my rhythm for the day and on the treadmill sometimes it take all of the time I have to figure that out. So by the time I'm feeling pretty good I'm done. Sure, I could do more, but I am trying not to deviate from the plan too much. Sometimes I throw in a short run just for the fun of it...I'm sure that won't hurt anything, but I like my rest! There will be a day that I'm adding an extra day of running, so I'm not going to push it too much.
Wednesday is speedwork on the treadmill. I couldn't finish the tempo run, but I think this might be different. I hope at least. Speedwork is my least favorite of all the training runs...blah...with my asthma it's hard to get a good session in and not feel like I'm going to die or something.
Sooo.....1 mile warmup then 3x800's @ 5:24 with 400 recovery in between and then 1 mile cooldown. These are the kinds of work outs that I don't necessarily like to do on the treadmill, but what else can I do? It's dark at the track in the morning and the evening. At least on the treadmill I can control the speed to a point.
And the training goes on....
Run Baby Run!
