Instead of just kicking out 1600M straight, I tried to make it a bit more challenging, breaking it into 3 parts: 500M, 500M, and 600M.
- The first 500M were nice and slow, foccusing mostly on getting my rhythm down and paying close attention to my form. Total time was 10:20, 2:04/100M.
- The second 500M I wanted to push it a bit harder, but not too hard that I was going to have to take a break. Total time was 9:44, 1:56/100M.
- The final 600M were to be a nice and slow consistent cool down. I think I was anxious to get it finished and get out of the pool. I know that I pushed myself a bit harder in the last 100M just to get it done. Total time was 12:14, 2:02/100M.
This was a fun workout. I can't wait to try it again and push myself a bit harder in the 2nd set!
It has been raining here all day. This is an oddity for ND in February. There are still mounds of snow all around, and it is raining. In fact, we are under a freezing rain storm warning. It's rediculous. The roads were horrible this morning and they are only going to be worse tomorrow when the temps drop back down below freezing.
Work was uber stressful this today. Enough to curb my appetite and give me a nice headache. The kids were great, however. 'nuff said.
On the flip side, my body is craving a good long run. Heck, I wouldn't mind having a nice 2-3 miler pain free. I just want to be able to get back to running and not have to deal with this darn knee issue. I know I said Saturday that I was going to wait to run until Thursday of this week, but I might try a mile tomorrow prior to getting on the bike to see how the knee is doing.
