Did I just say that?? The reality is that I'm afraid of them, like very afraid. I get nervous the day before and stress about it all day till its done. You see, unlike most dedicated, disciplined runners, I do not run in the morning, except on weekends. I cannot get up in the morning, period. That means, I get to worry about this tempo run all day till 7pm.
This week, I think I've done something I've never done in my entire life, that is running 5 days in a roll. Granted most of them are short runs, still. Give me the credit!! Yesterday I ran 3 easy miles with the hubs and the dog.
Today, hard tempo run a la Ryan hall's plan. Again, Ryan Hall's half marathon training plan has some very complicated pace, if I don't look at them before I leave, I'm deemed to do them wrong. So for the hard tempo run, I'm suppo to run at half marathon goal pace minus 10-15 second, so, my goal is to run them around 8:35-40.
I did a 1.3 mile warm up, yeah, I had to get to a place where I don't get interrupted by traffic lights etc. He are the splits. I'm pretty darn proud of myself since I've always been kinda slow.
Well deserved day tomorrow!!
