Speedwork, yea, that's what we were talking about. Tonight torture looked like this:
1x1600 at 6:12,
1x3200 at 12:40,
2x800 at 2:58.
A 5 mile total workout once you add a 1/2 mile warmup and cooldown.
The mile went GREAT! I kicked out a 6:14. Oooo-Rah!
The 2 mile not so good. I have never run so hard to run so slow! I was trying so hard but going so slow! I had setup Garmin to do a Quick workout of distance and time. 2 miles in 12:40. I expected Garmin to beep at me if my pace was too slow but I guess she only does that if you set distance and pace. If you use the distance and time she has this nice way of telling you that your time has expired. It's a single beep. I guess that's her way of letting you down easy. My time expired on the last lap and then, and then, and then... Garmin had the nerve to just stop and tell me that she wasn't going to time me anymore! I didn't know there was a total time limit?!? She has been very emotional lately and I haven't been nice to her so maybe I should have expected this. Our relationship just isn't what it used to be. I miss the good times when we were both excited by each other and the relationship was easy. Sometimes it seems we just go through the motions. How do I revitalize out relationship? Maybe a special night out for a run? I just don't know, maybe I need a new model.
Speedwork, yea, that's what we were talking about.
So I dogged the 2 mile in 13:40 or at least that's all Garmin told me about.
I hit the last 800's in 3:14 each. That wasn't far off of the goal and I did them in exactly the same time, no degradation.
It's supposed to get cold here tomorrow. I like cold. But not tomorrow. It's too soon. Cold should come in November. That's when I ordered it this year. They never listen anymore though, almost like the weather Gods aren't listening to me. Customer service these days. Geesh.
Thanks for listening
