Did not run on Wednesday or THursday, work has been hectic, but Wednesday was planned, Yesterday I had planned to run after work, I left work at 8 p.m. but when I got home I just skip the run and decided to rest.
Today I left work again at 8 p.m, but this time I was dtermined to run no matter what, I was tired and hungry but ran anyway, because I knew as soon as I would be running , I would feel good.
I headed out to run at 9:00p.m.,The plan for today was to run easy , but those plans went to rest as soon as I turned up the turbo in the 3rd lap.
I felt mentally tired on lap 2 so decided to enjoy myself a bti, to either finish this thing faster mentally, and increase my fitness at the same time. So I planned to run the 3rd lap fast, 4th easy and the last one fast again, I did not how fast, maybe tempo effort or whatever, but the reality was that I ran much faster than tempo pace, but I FELT good so I went with it.
Got to the park in 7:49, feeling fresh and rested, of course I had been rested for 2 days off. Laps were 6:13,5:57,4:48m6:22,4:18. The 4:48, surprised, because I felt good , but that 4:18 felt awesome, I really ran hard on that lap, but I was alwasys under conrol, I was huffing and puffing hard, but in someway I was underconrol, my form was under control and I finish the fast periods feeling pretty good and running easy right away, the last time I ran that fast was in a 1 lap race with Jose and Gian, I caughed for more than 30 mins, but today it was more like a fast lap and back on my feet right away.
Felt pretty good, afte those 5 laps I went back home to finish 7.5k in 43:35, total time surprised as well, so I averaged in laps 3rd through 5th, 15:28, so my tempo pace, but that did not feel like that because I had a km easy sandwiched between hard efforts!
Have a great night !
