before i started my run, my big question was … can i do the 2×10 5min hard and run back harder pass the starting point. repeat. or will i run 3 repeats.
sadly … i was only able to do one and half …total 15mins speed workout. i knew the exact point where i reached my lactic threshold. legs felt like lead. masakit? oh yes! was it fun. oh yeah! i was hitting my speedform pace and it was fun. next time i think i will adjust my standing rest. maybe include a slow jog before the next repeat. I read somewhere that to develop and pushback the lactic threshold … one has to do more of this runs but always at the right training zone and the right amount of time. I think to tweak the workout i have to figure out the amount of recovery i need. im a work in progress… and i love troubleshooting.
I ran in my new newtons! Yey! They were hot pink and wonderful! will do a separate entry to review them.
