AM/Lunch: Cumberland Park - 13.6 miles total w/ 3 x 2 mile @ LT w/ 3:00 recovery jogs
Tried to get up at 7:30, but I didn't feel like getting up. Too much to think about and too much to do. I paid for it a bit during the workout because it cost me several degrees and MPH on the wind end of things.
4 up/3 down
Set 1: 12:16 (6:04, 6:12)
Set 2: 12:28 (6:19, 6:09)
Set 3: 12:37 (6:21, 6:16)
I was dying the last third mile of the last mile. Splits weren't razor sharp but I did have some decent winds (17-20 mph on the first mile section), but they didn't annoy me too much. A good early season, honest workout. I haven't done a set of honest repeats since before Boston, so this gets things moving. Got to get them into the 5:50 range or faster before B2B to run what I want to run but I've got 7-8 weeks and lots of workouts (tons of time for a 10k). I am pretty sure I am going to move to 9-day cycles, especially since I only have a few more long run Sundays with the boys anyway.
Kenyan jog on the Purdue Cross Country course this afternoon.
PM: Purdue Cross Course - 4.25 miles, averaged 9:12
