Sunday Long run.

Whew.  Long run. I had 12 miles on the docket.  Now. 12 is kind of a mid distance and it isn’t that long. My issue was that I’ve kinda been slacking on the long run. The last Sunday I was on an airplane, so no long run. The previous sunday I was supposed to be …

Tracktown Thursday

Thursday is currently speed work day on my plan. So I rolled out of bed, feeling a mix of anxiety and tiredness. I do not love this workout.  The thing about speed work is that when it is being done correctly, you do not actually feel very good. Look at the facial expressions.  This is …
