Oh yeah, I'm feeling it.
But I made it through level 1 on the "Shred" without a problem. I could have done level 2 but I
Today was the tempo run. I didn't know if I'd have time at lunch so I left home early to hit the rec before work. I only had time for 3 miles (instead of the planned 4) but here are the results:
Mile One - warm up, first lap walking, 6 laps running (10:45 mm pace while running)
5 minutes for bathroom break, water, and stretching
Mile Two - 9:15 mm
Mile Three - 9:30 mm
One lap cool down - walking
I might have been able to go faster if I had been better hydrated or have eaten before running but right now I need to consider changing my goal for the 5k to 9:30 mm rather than a 9 mm. If I go faster great, but I think it's more realistic to think of a 29:30 minute finish time. That third mile was a struggle today - race day is always better but there will also be hills.
Just thinking out loud really...
The weather will still be gross on Saturday so I'm not sure I'll get a full 6 miles in since running indoors for that long is a bore. I might switch it up a bit and do 2-3 miles of running and some other cardio.
