the planned workout: 4x200 (:30 rest), 3x1000 (1:00 rest), 4x200 (:30 rest)
what i actually loaded into garmin: 4x400 (:30 rest), 3x1000 (1:00 rest), 4x400 (:30 rest). go me.
200 vs 400, not a huge deal right? it becomes a minor issue when you don't double the goal time while doubling the distance. mmyeah. cause i can run a 400 in 0:46, no problem. that only rounds up to a 3:10 mile, totally doable.
needless to say, it was disheartening to constantly hear garmin beeping at me to speed up and i basically flaked on the whole workout.
4x400 - 1:31, 1:41, 1:47, 1:50 --> not quite the 1:34's i was looking for
3x1000 - 4:49, 4:31, 4:36 --> nowhere near the 4:11's i wanted
4x400 - 1:42, 1:39, 2:10, 1:45 --> still not 1:34's
i don't know if i was mentally checked out or if my legs are still recouping from sunday's 19 miler, but this isn't quite the confidence boost i was hoping for.
