7 weeks to go…less than 50 days out…time flies.
Well this was an interesting week of sorts. Highlighted by “Bibgate“. Unfortunately, I got that news the day of my track workout, and it definitely threw me-I was “off” the entire time. I was supposed to hit 5:00 per 1200 and was way off…
Not sure if I was still feeling my MP run from Sunday, or if it was Bibgate getting to me, but I wasn’t happy with this one at all. Especially the last one-I was definitely hauling, and the heart rate data showed it, why was it so slow?
Tried to put it behind me for Thursday, 2 consecutive tempo loops of the Harlem Hill loop (approx 1.41 miles). My 2 loops were 10:56/10:35 (7:43/7:28 pace)…improvement from the last time I did this workout in May, when I ran 10:56/10:57? Was the first really cool night in awhile (very windy too!)-felt a little underdressed in short sleeves and almost could have been glove weather!!
As for today’s half, there is a full report to come, but I will say for now that the popular opinion on the poll was correct (1:37-1:39.) There was no PR, but still glad to get under 1:40 as it was definitely tougher going than I expected. Of course, I knew it was gonna be a challenge going in as I was not tapered…
