Week 10 - August 8 - August 14
Did 1 mile warm up, some dynamic stretches, ran 8 x400, cooled down with 2 miles at very comfortable pace. Felt good and I had to hold back. I guess i'm finally learning to pace myself.
5 miles easy recovery run. Some static stretches and I'm gone before the crowd arrives at Tropical Park.
Weather really bad today thunderstorms, doesn't stop me though. I did a tempo run at the stables at Tropical Park. No reason to ever cancel practice as long as they let me run here.
1 mile warm up 2x15 min at about 45 sec slower than race pace. 1 mile cool down. 1x60 meter all out sprint back to the car as lightning strikes nearby.
40 minute easy run. Felt good legs seem fresh.
5 mile run moderate pace at Doug Barnes park. Only park around that has some small rolling hills. I run here when running on flat terrain becomes old. Nice view and shade around the lake. Teams aren't allowed to run here so I often run alone or with my friend Jordan when she is able .ed
The usual 55 minute long run at easy pace at Tropical Park.
Rest day. Watching Usain Bolt tear it up in Brazil.
