Apparently on Sunday I start a REST and RECOVERY week.
Today… is not Sunday.
Today was Monday.
It is a recovery day from the long run so I got to hop in the pool.
No workout buddy today so….
I broke it into 3 sets of 1000 yards each. Whew. The first 2000 were pretty nice, but the third…
Felt a little like:
Not totally comfy. But it did get done.
Afterwards, I had my One mile RUN! I had begged the coach for this. So I got all dressed up, had a moment of doubt thinking, “Hmmm did I really want this?” then hit the mill.
I decided since I’m trying to get faster, I’d try for a faster mile. It is after all, only one.
It was a blast. I just ran along at a fairly fast clip. It was entirely enjoyable. One mile is, of course loads shirter than 12 of them. Anyway, I enjoyed it SO much that I think I might like running again!
