My life is officially a rollercoaster ride!

I was just going along in my week, minding my own business and out of nowhere I get an email from one of the track coaches.

Apparently I will be competing in Pentathlon on Friday! I didn't see that one coming!

And so just 4 short days after competing Sunday, I will be off Friday morning to my next track meet - the good news: I will have Saturday off from all things Track although I don't know how much energy I will actually have!

If I can just make it through this week I will be ok.

Since we had the meet on Sunday, I feel like I am a day behind. I keep thinking today is Tuesday! I have a lot to get done so I better get started!

yesterday's workouts
6x200m warm up
1-2x 450m paced with last 50m all out
2x200m at 90%
2x100m fly-ins at race pace
3x200m cool down

My legs still felt dead from the weekend! And I feel like running a mile is such a long way. I was cooling down yesterday and thought to myself - How did I ever run 3 miles?

answer: much more slowly!!!! you're a speed demon, but slow and steady is the approach i would guess to re-increasing your mileage:) DEF a patience-practice! this is going to be my focus moving forward as i increase from 10 miles up. more than 13 seems impossible,... but i know it is doable. same thing from track to mid-long distance :)
