So yesterday I did something that I really never thought I could do again, I ran on back to back days! On Sunday, I ran four miles over one of the hardest course I have,i.e. it has hill and a half in the run, and then today I came back and ran an easy 5K! And right now my legs and body feel pretty good, the real test will be tomorrow! Here are the times, I know boring!!
Yesterday – 4 miles – total time 45:22 – splits 1 mile – 9:38, 2 mile 10:40 3 mile 10:41, 4 mile 11:39
Today – 3.1 miles – total 33:03 1 10:18, 2 10:37, 3 10:48 .1 1:21
Today I set out to run a nice slow run and was constantly trying to keep my pace down. and no big hills – The soundtrack for the run was JC Stylles album Blakey Grease. JC is a great jazz guitarist and he plays in an organ trio setting – good stuff you can read about it here
Yesterday I made a mistake and used Dragonforce, for the whole run – I should NEVER use Dragonforce for the first mile of a run!! You can see that the first mile yesterday was 9:38, which was a really good time – but not so good when you have to climb a hill in the second mile! I basically held on for the next 3 plus miles!!!
