Wednesday's view of a run
I also had my first week with 3 (yes, THREE!) speed workouts. Hey, I've not claimed to be bright when it's comes to this running stuff. Monday's clinic was 2 miles at one minute slower than our last timed mile in order to get us used to pacing--something I obviously have said I needed to work on in the past. In my case, that meant my 2x1 miles were to be at 7:56, first one was right on, the second was fast at 7:43. Wednesday I went running with Ginny for my first ever tempo run which I will deem a success--I was to do my 30 minutes at an 8:30-8:45 pace (the first mile might have been a tad fast). I'm probably a convert to her timed method of running rather than distance, as she says it's easier to keep going by saying "just one more minute" rather than "just one more mile". Thursday for clinic we had those blasted 30/30s again. Can't decide if I love them or hate them. There's something to be said for 20 minutes of torture that occurs 30 seconds at a time. I was slightly slower on this workout than the last time we did it but I'm still happy with the splits, however the tight turns on this one still kills my knees for a couple of days after.
