Incorporated speed intervals into my run yesterday for the first time. It wasn’t as easy to tune out and enjoy the ride as when I go for a longer run at a more leisurely pace, but it was fun to punctuate my run with sprints. I did a three mile run, and I switched from normal running pace to more of a sprint for the last quarter of each mile.
Yesterday was a moderately hectic work day and today will be much the same. I feel fortunate to have my running and training goals as a healthy way of processing some of the added stress.
The rest of the week is looking relatively light. Zumba tonight, a buddy run through the neighborhood tomorrow evening, and I will likely revisit my speed intervals on Friday. I plan to take Saturday off and to complete my Sunday long run as a trail run. I would like to complete at least 7 miles on Sunday.
