Fast, fast, fast

Posted Mar 26 2009 3:04pm
I had a bad running day Wednesday. 10 miles in 8:37 pace with the last two miles averaging more than 9:30 mile. I don' t know what the deal was. I' ve run 10 miles a ton of times, but I was feeling so bad near the end of Wednesday' s run that I stopped near the end of Mile 9.

It was one of those runs where you wonder if you' ll ever be fast again.

Today (Thursday), I was just going to do a slow 6-miler with the Luke' s Locker group that runs hills. I figure that my legs are dead and I' ve probably plateaued from all that marathon training. But then, a few of the fast guys show up, Roberto, Blair, Dave, and, well, I couldn' t help myself. I ran with them.

Here are the splits:

1 - 7:40
2 - 7:17
3 - 6:56
4 - 6:30 (slight downhill)
5 - 6:36
6 - 6:59 ("cool down")

It' s amazing what the legs can do. I' ve got a 10k Saturday and know I will easily break my PR (44:25). I' ll do an easy 4-miler Friday and the 10k Saturday to put me at 40 miles for the week.
