25min at RPE4 with 6 x100m accelarations at the end.

Rough run this morning.  Didn't help I had a bit too much to drink last night.  1/2 a bottle of wine and 2 glasses of port make the legs VERY heavy in the morning.  Still, the accelerations were good. 

Got my packet today for tomorrow morning.  Now I just hope it stays precipitation free.  I hate running in the rain.  I'll do it, but I won't like it.  Keep your fingers crossed kiddies.

Again.  Note to self.  PAY ATTENTION TO THE WIND!!!  Sheesh.  You would think I would have learned by now.  At least it was nice to be outside again.

Swim
  • 33m 02s
  • 1417.32 meters
  • 02m 20s /100 meters

Technique. Focus on technique during the easy 50s, don't lose it on the build and hard legs.
10 x 200 (50 Easy, 50 Build, 50 Easy, 50Hard)
150 easy cooldown
Only did 7 of the 10 because I ran out of time.

However, I did notice that with the 30 second rest after each 200, the longest 200 + rest I had was 4:25 and the shortest one was 4:10! So that means I was doing ALL of the 200's sub 4:00. Makes me very happy.

Run
  • 45m
  • 4.73 miles
  • 09m 31s /Mi

45min at RPE 3. Stretch well afterwards. In case you skipped the last sentence: stretch well afterwards.

Ok, so I was going to wake up early and do my swim before work.  Couldn't wake up.  Just couldn't do it. Couldn't wake up.  So I decided to try to fit it in at lunch.  I did 7 of the 10 200's.  I had to wait a bit for a lane so I couldn't do all 10.  So I really pushed it on the 7 I could do. 

Then I came home and ran OUTSIDE.  YEAH!!!  It was awesome.  Tried a new route and loved it.  A little hillier than the other long route a do so I'm going to do it a bit more.  Will pay off in the end.  Took it easy and still did 9:30/mile.  Felt really, REALLY good.  Sunday is only a few more days away.  I hope I don't put too much stock into this race.  It really is only a measure of where I am before Sullivan.  I know I will PR the race.  But will I make my goal of 8:30/mile?  Only the race will tell.  :)
