2 WU 5x1200 with 500 recovery jogs 2 CD

3:57, 3:46, 3:41, 3:39, 3:39

after the first warm up interval (it was cold this morning) we got to work. I wasn't even pushing that much and I hit :41 and :39 and was amazed. I'm getting into great shape but I would rather reduce the recovery interval and have a little slower splits, but I trust in process and do find value in longer recoveries/faster intervals, but I also need to include greater threshold work. Anyway, I'm going to back it down this week for the 10K Sunday. It's my late day at work so I'm not going to get a pool run in later, but that's ok for this week.

PM: 5 easy

Going to take it easy the rest of the week with just a 5 and 5 tomorrow with drills and strides, a complete rest day Friday, and an easy 3 with drills and strides Saturday.  I'm going to race hard on Sunday and I'm looking for a good time so I am doing a little tapering.

zero, nothing, complete rest. Maybe a little stretching. I'm doing this on purpose to heal up my legs for Sunday.  I have not taken a day completely off in awhile and I'm hoping it will allow me to feel fresh.  I did a lot of muscle tension work (i.e. drills, strides, barefoot run) yesterday so I'm hoping that I feel that "pop" in my legs on race day.  I'll run an easy three with some drills and strides tomorrow in order to losen up my legs.

3 easy, light drills and strides.  legs feel a little stiff...not used to complete days off. Hopefully this little run will allow my legs to feel fresh tomorrow.
