PM: 11.5 miles, averaged 8:53
Stridlek workout: 3 (6 x 40") w/ 4' jogs, then 5' jog after the last set w/ 2' around 5k race day effort. I hit 5:42 for that, but imagine that if I had to run a 5k right now breaking 18 would be difficult.
A little more than RDE for the 2', but I wanted to push slighly as I am so out of shape, overweight, and feeling crappy. Overcast and very humid. We have had such a mild summer and my fitness level where it is, anything slightly uncomfortable kills me.
So, a bit short rest than last week plus the extra 2' at the end. I believe we will progress to 3', then 4', then 5'. 5' is quite a lot at 5k effort even though this is basically "just" a super stride workout.
Megan and I are headed to Maine tomorrow for my cousin's wedding, such is why I moved my workout to today. I didn't want to run for more than 35-65' on the first day I get there. I haven't been since last June, which was the last time I saw my siblings. I haven't seen my parents since the end of January, which might be a PR.
