Last night my coach texted me, while I was sleeping, and changed my workout this morning. I was already nervous for the run he had given me, and getting a new, even harder one, late last night wasn’t ideal.
I already was trying to catch up on sleep from the night before, and going to have to wake up earlier to get this longer mid-week run in.
Needless to say, not my favorite way to fall back to sleep and wake up.
I was supposed to do a tempo run of 10-13 miles, the last 8 at marathon pace. He changed it to 3x3miles at half marathon pace with .5 mile recovery in between.
Jesus it was not easy. No workout is. Am I delusional in thinking someday I’ll feel good during these? The thing is, I have to guess at HM and M pace because it’s been so long since I’ve done them. Oh well, I tried my best. I hope it’s good enough for Texas.
Speaking of Texas, I’m going to leave the van at my parents house, and also take my other car there too. I don’t drive it as much with the van, so it makes sense to park it in a more long term place. I might even take some of the insurance off it since I’m not driving it.
7 days till TEXAS!
Breakfast: peanut butter and jelly on an onion bagel and iced latte
