I ran an easy 5 this morning and later, when evening came, went to the workout with no real plan. I suppose this is where having a coach might help...but tonight was a peculiar circumstance. It was a workout smack dab in the middle of two races. On one hand, I am training through these races, but on the other hand I am still trying to race them well. If I can steal 5-10 seconds for a 5k by chillin on the Wednesday workout, I'll do it. I didn't want to run anything fast, so I decided to jump in with the group and run some 2ks (at shy of 10 mile pace). I only timed/noted the mile splits, but kept my pace up for 5 laps; 5:06, 5:00, 4:50. I tacked on a couple of 200s to gte the legs moving. I ran on feel and tried to imagine myself continuing for 9 more miles. I ended the workout feeling fine and if I hadn't done anything, so I suppose this is good, though I am not 100% sure. 11 for the night, 16 for the day. 11 guys at the track tonight...pretty good. Next Wednesday, I'll get in a real workout.
