|So yeah, I'm a little late to the Garmin Connect game.|
But, I did get a chance to go out and do my favorite speed run I love to hate. I affectionately call it "Puking Leapfrog" since you essentially leapfrog fast and recovery paces until you want to puke. Clever, huh?
I started with a 1-mile warmup and already felt like I wanted to die. (Note to self: 9:07 is a bit too fast for me to warm up.) Then I got into a groove of 1 mile fast, half mile recover, repeat for a total of 4 fast miles. I wanted to descend the fast, but I ended up with 8:42, 8:47, 8:42 and 8:01, which honestly isn't bad considering the wind was blowing at 20 mph. And I am annoyed I couldn't run two seconds faster for that last mile to get a sub-8!
I'm not doing a whole lot right now, but I am trying to make what I DO do count.
