My other high heels usually only make an appearance once a week because the heels are hard on my feet after a morning run. When I absolutely need to wear heels, I bring them into work and change when needed.
Today I am definitely in flats after last nights running club run -
3x 1600m at tempo pace
2 x surges (30s @ Interval, 30s @ easy, 60s @ Interval, 60s @ easy, 90s @ interval, 90s @ easy)
After the 5 mile race this past weekend, I looked up my new paces on the VDOT chart. It says my tempo pace should be 7:30min/mi. The temps were in the mid 40s last night and my legs just wanted to run! We ran around the loop at the local park where we practice every week - since the loop is not exactly a mile we ended up starting each repeat at a different location.
|This is the loop we run on for workouts - notice the up and downhill portions! Loop = 0.75mi (1200m)|
7:15 - Did I really just race on Saturday? And I ran this pace? This doesn't feel that bad.
7:23 - Ok those two hills were not fun, but now only one more to go!
7:19 - I love running! This is so much fun!
I felt really good after this workout and all this running on hills has been paying off! Today I again choose to take a rest day instead of a recovery run because tomorrow I have another "mid week" long run planned.
Has running made you give up your heels?? I refuse to give up yet!
