We all have issues. My issue with running is doing my easy runs easy so that I can actually do the faster stuff. This week was kinda disastrous, but really fun at the same time. Or as my dear coach says: why am I even giving you a schedule? You don't listen.
In all fairness. I do listen. I just started the week off sore as hell from a long run Sunday that was 10x the elevation I usually do. And my new Saucony Cortana's are not working out. They feel almost like a stability shoe to me. So Monday came around and this is how it went:
Monday: 8 easy 8 easy 7:28 pace
Tuesday: 2 mile warm up, 5-6 1000's 8 @ 7:20 pace.
and 2 cool down eh...okay...
Wednesday: 7-8 easy 2 mile w/u 3 1000's, c/d.
Thursday: 9 miles 9 miles @ 7:19. ok, fine.
Then 5 in the pm
Friday: 1mile w/u 2 miles tempo x3 15 Miles @7:16 pace.
cool splits tho
Saturday: 8 easy still on the couch
Sunday: 15 easy long I am pacing a 5k slow
So lesson learned. I think I'll go get this 8 easy done and call it a day.
Well happy running and taper to those racing!
