I did a five mile run this morning and other than wanting to quit at mile 1, it was nothing special. I feel like since the marathon I've gotten slower... which bothers me :( I know it's not a big deal, because I'm still out there running and it doesn't matter the pace, but before I started marathon training I was consistently running anywhere between 8:40-8:50 pace ALL THE TIME. Now I'm lucky if I stay under a 9:40 pace. Uuuuugh!
So, I've decided I need some speed work. My hubby was a track star in high school so he knows all about what to do, but I still like to look up speed work on pinterest (because I'm addicted.) Here is an article that I found that will be helpful. I have to have it laid out for me, when it says 400X4 and 500 at easy, and all that, I don't understand. Now if I take hubby out there with me, he explains it all and it's fine, but we can't always go together, so this was a good article that even I can understand :)
I run some pretty big hills almost every day, so I liked this! And it's so true!
So, needless to say, I'm going to start doing some speed work. Have you heard of any good speed work outs?
