You know that workout that happens every single training cycle where you never feel good for one step of the run; that was yesterday. In most workouts, I experience highs and lows but rarely is the entire thing a low!
It’s to be expected during the taper, especially after the massive workout we did a few days prior. I am checking it off, forgetting about it, and focusing on recovery.
A highlight was getting to catch up with Josse for a few minutes. We used to run every day together (she got me out of bed during my divorce to meet her for runs), and I love her so much. She has had a bunch of injuries but is back, and I am so excited to see her again.
I’m not sure about my total overall pace because I have had the hardest time remembering to start and stop my watch during runs. For many of our runs lately, Lauren has had to add me onto her Strava run because I keep forgetting to push start, but I know I hit 16 miles for the day, and I’m guessing around a 7:45 average pace.
I’m going to put her in charge of my watch.
The workout portion-> 10 x 1 minute fast, 1 minute easy + 10 x 30 seconds fast, 45 seconds easy. It was a much shorter workout than what we’ve been doing, but the fact that we all felt like it was very hard made me feel like what we were feeling is just part of the process.
Kids were off to school.
And Skye was so happy to wear her sweatshirt. Zara will add their name to some of the sweatshirts for you, which was a big deal to her.
Beck joined me for some strength.
