AM - 14.5 Tempo loop. Approached the tempo a little different today. Started off with 2 miles at regular AT tempo (probably around 5:40 and 5:35 based off what Clyde's splits were, but my watch was set for this next section of the workout so not too sure), then went into a wave tempo with 2 mins at LT pace and 5 mins at AT pace - 5 sets. This was a brutal workout. The first set was really good and the quick section was actually faster than LT (what my goal actually will be someday) and the AT was in the 5:30's (also the goal), but then it just got tougher. Was able to keep the next 4 LT's at 5:15 ave, but the AT's were a touch off around low 5:40's (didn't get a full 5 mins on the last one, as the tempo section ended, but it was especially tough and a bit slow). The hardest part was to hear the watch beep and mentally wanting to drop into a recovery, but physically only being able to dial it back a little bit. I'll do a few more of these before Phoenix though and get better at it. (Hyper speed 2 392.5)
afternoon - 6 North Desert. Was thinking about doing Dino Tracks, but as I got near the trail, my legs were a bit tired from this morning and I decided to do the ND since it is easier. (Landreth blue 1043.9)
Pretty pleased about this year. Had some good races, overcame some injuries and had a lot of good times putting a bunch of miles.
