How Did I Get So Busy

I’m tired and I promised myself that I would get to bed early this evening. I had a chat with Jon on Monday and we decided to add two additional easy runs to the schedule (Tuesday and Friday morning). I’m happy to report that both my achilles and my knee appear to be better so the timing seems good.

Yesterday was an easy double and as good as I felt on the run in to work, I felt even better later that evening. I had to continue to remind myself to ease up and to save the energy for when it’s needed.

It was needed today.

The session was simple, 6x5’ at 10k effort. Despite the first interval feeling ragged, the rest were good and I was very pleased with the w/o. For the first time in weeks, I found myself pushing into the hills and really challenging the pace.

Okay, until later…

Monday: day off/core (scheduled)
Tuesday: A.M. easy 38:03, P.M. steady 59:28
Wednesday: 1:27:52 with 6x5’ (1.5’) at 10kE
