Today’s Run: Speed work! W/U, 1200, 1000, 800, 600, 400, 200 (all w/200m jogs between) C/D
I really didn’t feel like running this morning. I tried to talk myself out of it at least 3 times. I was tired and just feeling blech from a serious lack of sleep on Sunday night. Somehow I made it out of bed and to the gym by 4:50.
I hopped on the TM, put it on a .5% incline and started my warm up. Around 1.25 miles I realized I never started my watch. Proof of total tiredness. Hey, I never claimed to be a genius prior to 5 am. I hit go and got into my speedwork.
1200m @ 9.0, 1000m @ 9.0, 800m @ 9.0, 600m @9.5, 400m @ 9.5, 200m @ 9.5
I did 200m jogs between at a 7.0. Let me tell you, this WOKE MY BUTT UP! Half way through I actually started to feel good. Whhhhaaaaaaa????? I thought about doing additional repeats and then remembered I was tired and over it. Funny how that works.
Total mileage 5.5, total time 45 min.
Have you ever done speed work on a TM? I love it! It breaks up the monotony of running in place and has helped me to improve my race times.
I have some serious madness happening in the office this morning. As soon as I get things under control I will post my Bach Review and BB update! Reality Tuesday people- Check it!
