Total time of 58:00
5 x 15-20 seconds hard during the run
My original plan was to run 2 x 0.5 miles at about 5:30 pace, but I felt more tired yesterday that expected (I accidentally ran farther than planned too, finishing yesterdays run in 60:49) so I decided to make todays "workout" more relaxed.
I am running the Orem turkey trot on Thursday, and I am excited for that. It will be the first race that I have run since the summer of 2013. I am mentioning the race now because I have a goal for the race to really focus on pushing myself hard during the last 1-2 minutes of the race (maybe start kicking once I make the second to last turn?), and to kick hard. I want to tie up if possible before I hit the line. I feel like I frequently struggle to really push myself hard at the end of max efforts, so I want to rectify that on Thursday.
