Last Easy Day

Run Day- Recovery Week
Time- 20:18
Distance- 2.09mi

Took it pretty easy today. Its the last day of this recovery week and next Tuesday I start hitting it really hard again. Felt good. I like to see that this run was pretty much dead on a 10min/mi pace. That's ok for now, but too slow for the race. Which means that I'm going to have to start making runs hurt a lot more in the coming weeks. I've mentioned this before and I'll mention it again, I need to find a few more gears and the only way to do that is to force my body out of the comfort cruise zone that it's sitting in right now, for the run especially. My swim gears will come back, and I don't have any riding gears because I'm still new to the discipline and the things I'm doing on the bike will help me find more. But since I used to run on the treadmill at a ten minute pace I seem to be stuck. I've overtrained it into my legs and I'm going to have to fight it out.
Day off tomorrow, then back at it hardcore. Booyah, grandma. Booyah.

  1. Maybe train on the treadmill a day a week, so you can push yourself to a consistently faster pace. So you can get the rhythm and feeling of a 8.5 mile now, and then faster...depending on what you want your time to be.
