Training for 5/24/11

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 4:14 pm

This morning was the second of two 7.5-mile track workouts leading up to the half marathon, six 800-meter repeats at 10K pace. It was hot and muggy, the sun came out less than halfway through and for some reason the walkers were attracted to my freaking inside lane like moths to a flame (I seriously had to dodge them on every repeat but the last one!)

I wasn’t really feeling it today, but I got through it OK. After a mile of warm up, I ran the six repeats (goal splits of 3:41 each) in 3:42, 3:40, 3:38, 3:37, 3:36 and 3:32. I then ran another mile to cool down.

This is the last week of hard workouts before the half. I just have to get through this week and next week should be a relative breeze. On top of the weather warming up, I have a 5-mile race on Sunday, so I moved around some workouts so I could take it easy the day before the race. As a result, I’m running my longest tempo run Thursday morning, and then my final long run the next morning.
