My schedule called for an "Easy Four" and this is how it played out (in half mile increments):
I find the splits by half mile more interesting this morning than the mile splits because it shows that I did a fairly good job keeping an even pace except for the first half mile which was down hill and the half mile after the turn point (no clue why that one was faster).
Despite lack of speed work, my easy runs seems to be naturally speeding up. It feels like I'm putting in the same effort, but somehow my legs are carrying me at a faster pace. Wild, huh?
That's all for now. Enjoy your day, folks!
editted to add - just got this note from Coach, which sums things up nicely - "We just need to stay focussed now, you have two weeks left and you can do this!"
That is a really cool note from Coach.. 2 weeks :)ReplyDelete
way to go. It is funny how you just seem to get a little faster the longer you do this thing called running.ReplyDelete
to answer your question, yes, I do do bricks, a lot. Which is why I am so baffled.
That note from your coach sounds very similar to what I'm getting from mine.
Yay! Very exciting for you. ;)ReplyDelete
Sounds like you're getting strong....and swift...2 weeks, WOOHOO!!ReplyDelete
You are getting fitter and stronger. :-) I agree with coach. You can do it!ReplyDelete
Two weeks!!! Woohoo!ReplyDelete
what coach said!ReplyDelete
Awesome job keeping a steady paceReplyDelete
So, you got the steady part down. You might just have to change your name to Fast and steady. ;o)ReplyDelete
For me, the fall weather dropped my pace quite a bit too. I like to think all summer was "humidity training."ReplyDelete
Nice work! Sounds like you have a great coach.ReplyDelete
Very consistent pacing! Nice job.ReplyDelete
That is always nice when easy seems easy AND you notice it's faster. Hope you had a great Monday!ReplyDelete
