This mornings workout was planned especially so that I could work on running under 7 minute miles to prepare for the race. I want my body to know what the miles are supposed to feel like and so that way I wont go out too fast or too slow. Therefore this morning I ran mile repeats!
I ran to the track, stretched quick and then started the first mile. The laps were uneventful as it was dark and I think I may have zoned out a bit. I finished the 4 laps and waited a few minutes then started the second mile.
Mile 1: 6:53
Mile 2: 7:00
The second mile I started off slower and that totally hurt me because at the end I was racing to finish at the 7 minute mark. Overall it was a decent workout and now my hamstrings are a little sore. Is two miles for repeats enough?? I remember the distance girls in high school track running 3-5 mile repeats!!
I did go swimming last night too - only 500 yards because I knew I would be running this morning (I forgot how to swim for like the first few laps). I am not sure what to do for a workout tomorrow, I was going to take off Friday but two days off before the race I think is too much.
I guess I should get back to work...
