I took a couple of days off to recharge my running batteries and to gain some perspective. I felt really good this mourning my legs felt good and strong so I decided to go with a speed workout and see what they will do. My splits went as follows; 8:13, 8:13, 7:17, 7:57, 8:42, 8:00, 8:20. My average pace was 8:06 with a total time of 56:47. My last mile felt comfortable and in control, it was a cool down and it felt easy. The middle miles felt in control but I tryed not to push it to hard on these, just enough to get my heart rate up which peaked out at around 163. My legs felt alittle heavy towards the end, but they felt like they had strength in them still, so that is a good sign.
My average Heart Rate was 1:48 and I did some core strength training with 70 push-ups and 200 crunches all down in sets. My goal tomorrow will be to do a longer run of 10 miles or more, but I will have to see how my legs feel and go from there.
See ya tomorrow.
