- I really need to do the track workouts to strengthen my weakness
- I'm well suited to racing longer distances like half-marathons up to 50k
Matt was a "maybe, don't wait for me" for joining this morning. I was just about to take off when he pulled up. Man, was I glad to see him! Misery loves company! We took it easy for the first two miles and then sped up for almost every mile after that. We managed a 7:48 average pace with a very strong finish, another 6:38 15th mile!
I needed today's workout psychologically more than I needed it physiologically. Oh, it did some physiological good by providing a very good endurance and aerobic stimulus. However, my confidence was shot by the complete meltdown in the last half mile of McKay Hollow Madness and by the rabbit effort for a turtle pace of the past three track workouts. Today, I felt like I could have run 4 or 5 more 7 minute miles, and I needed to feel that way after a workout.
I think I like to run.
