3 x 1600

Objective: 3 x 1600
Recovery: 1:00
Result: 6:50 / 6:39 / 6:24

Recap: I messed something up with my watch on the first repeat, so I'm not actually sure what my time was. 6:50 is my best guess. My legs were tired, and have been for the past week and a half or so, so these felt harder than usual. I was exhausted and sore by the time I finished the last repeat, and was definitely a bit disappointed with my time, but I hope it's just all these workouts catching up with me and that, once I get over the hump, I'll be stronger and faster than ever.

Dec. 20 - 26

Sun - 8 miles river loop and yoga
Mon - 0 miles, knitting
Tue - 6 miles with speed workout
Wed - 0 miles
Thur - 0 miles, yoga
Fri - 6 miles
Sat - 0 miles, wasn't feeling well
Total: 20

As you can see, I wasn't feeling well at the end of this week. I had a headache and just felt tired. Spending time with my family over Christmas made me rethink the marathon, because no one in my family thinks doing a marathon in February is a good idea. I have until Thursday to sign up to get the discounted rate, so I need to make a decision...

3 x 1600

Objective: 3 x 1600
Recovery: 1:00
Results: 6:50 / 6:29 / 6:16

Overview: My legs were sore and tired, and it was quite windy. I could kind of tell I was going too slow on the first repeat, but I was still surprised to see my time. I realized last week what a difference it makes to run these workouts with someone else, so I might look into joining a track club of some sort.

Dec. 6 - 12

Sun - 8 miles, I think. Hanover loop with a big hill. It was cold out, but it felt so good to run. I love running.
Mon - 6 miles, loop
Tue - 6 miles with track workout
Wed - 0 miles, and didn't go to yoga, was feeling light-headed
Thur - 6 mile tempo. I get this feeling during my evening runs along the Boston harbor that I want to open my arms up to the sky and just bask in the beauty and feel of running. I don't do it, because I'm afraid of what people will think (I shouldn't be, right?), but the urge is so strong.
Fri - 5 miles with rats
Sat - 0, yoga
Total: 31
