Total Miles Trained For Elijah: 88
After another busy evening, I got to bed a little late. Yet, I was up-and-at-'em at about 4:36 AM. I tinkered around a bit (getting ready and nothing else - so why is that tinkering?) and made it to the track right at 5 AM. Gosh I love the track!
Today was a "Susan's Choice" run of 5 miles, per Coach Terry. So I chose to do 400m repeats. They were to be 2:16-2:20. I did them in 2:18, 2:10, 2:07, 2:10, 2:09, 4:10 (the Garmin messed up, somehow, no kidding!), 2:18 and 2:21. It was strange; on the odd lap I was well past the spot where the Garmin should have beeped at me to slow down, so I looked down at it and it was waaaay off on distance. Hmm! Very strange. This is the first time in over a year with "G" that I have disputed the accuracy. Oh well - those are pretty good stats.
I love this particular workout because it is exciting. At any given time (after the warmup, of course) I am either running at pace or recovering. And I can always go fast for a piddly quarter mile, especially knowing that in less than a quarter mile I can slow down. No problem!
