Not wanting to shy away from the training, I decided to put the leg to the test yesterday night. The session called for 10x2’ and although not called for, I contemplated running 600s on the track but couldn’t line up the logistics. Consequently, after warming up on the Goose I proceeded to wind it up on the Lochside Trail. I tried to keep my pace steady and controlled for the first few repeats but was surprised how desperate and uncoordinated I felt. Still, by the time I began the back half of the set, my stride was coming around and for the first time in months I felt like I was chewing up the ground.
This weekend’s w/o will be the real test. I think the plan is to run a session similar to one completed a few weeks back, if nothing else I hope to see some improvement (I’m cautiously optimistic).
Wednesday: 1:15:28 with 10x2’ (1’)
Thursday: easy 1:01:00
