|i love my flats|
fast-running and i are still getting reacquainted. i've had some fear toward intervals and tempo runs for over a year and have avoided them at all costs. lame i know! since i'm already enforcing the rules on myself with my nutrition, i figured i could be the boss about some speedwork too.
the workout: 2x800, 1xmile, 2x800 (with 0.20mi recovery jogs)
my splits: 3:24, 3:26, 6:55, 3:19, 3:13 (avg pace for the whole workout 6:45)
the last time i did a workout and averaged a similar pace was uh, february 2010 (i told ya, avoidance at all costs). hopefully this is the confidence boost i need to make amends with fast-running and her boyfriend heavy-breathing; we need to become bff's again like we were in 2008 (yikes, that was three years ago).
i haven't raced in forever, so i'm not entirely sure what my training paces should be. i just kind of guessed at these. i'm pretty sure i'm not in 3:20 marathon shape if you consider these yasso's.
