Well after further inspection at the little calendar schedule I have printed out from Coach, I saw that apparently my speed work for Chicago has finally kicked in. Gah!
So that meant Wednesdays 6 miles were to have 4 of them at threshold pace. (9:21-9:31). Gah!
I thought screw that! Its my birthday! Its 92deg out and humid as heck! (usually its not as bad in the afternoons). Its my birthday! Gah!
Sooo because I had birthday dinner plans with an O so good looking man :), I had to run earlier than I normally do, and wouldn't you know it the clouds had parted and the angels weren't singing, but the sun was beating (down). Gah!
So I strategized a route...I could get 4 miles doing 'this', be back at home, refuel (since I knew the 10'ozer was gonna be empty by that point!), and then head out for a couple of loopy loo's! OK, I did exactly that, only about 1 mile into it, I decided I was going to just do 1 loopy loo :o) So I got 5 miles instead of 6 and only 3 of them were at threshold and when I say threshold, it was definitely at the 9:31 end and NOT the 9:21 end. I feel OK with it because lets be honest, here in Houston, in the Summer, doing speed work is H.A.R.D. so I feel if you even get close, you're doing great.
I am one sleepy pup this morning...gonna be an 'that was easy' button kind of run this afternoon that much is fo sho!
