Yesterdays sunset = 4:58pm therefore we were running in the dark for the end of the track workout as the sun had set and my silly school doesn't have any lights on the track. Seriously I could run the college better than the people in charge here!!
After a rough day at work it was nice to just get out and run and the weather was perfect. Abby and I ran the 400 repeats together again and we went out too fast.
81, 78, 83, 85, 80, and 86 seconds. We were supposed to do 7x400m this week but we were feeling it on the last one so we opted out of it. The girls cross country team was there doing repeats as well (8x400m at 82 second pace with 95 seconds rest - INSANE!!!) so Abby and I were feeling the pressure to run fast. Those first two repeats killed us and then on the 5th one we ran with the XC team and it hurt bad. The good thing is that we can see that there is improvement in our times.
I am heading home tonight to vote and so I went to the gym with my roommate this morning. My legs were dead and so I only did 2 miles on the treadmill then lifted. We are once again maxing out this week on the bench press and I can tell that I am stronger. After running 13.14 miles in 3 days (Sun, Mon, Tues) I definitely will need the next 24 hours of rest.
October Mileage - 75.48 (slight drop off from previous months)
