Speedwork Switch-up

Coming to you from my beloved iPhone since the laptop is packed up for our trip. We are headed out super early in the morning, but I will be getting up even earlier to squeeze in a run before we hit the road.

Today was my speedwork day and I needed to total 6 miles. Well it has been raining here all day, so I was confined back to the treadmill to get my intervals in.
I had planned to do 4x400, 3x800, 1600 with 400 RI in between, would give some good pushes and 6 miles.

I started out a little crazy and went too fast on the first 400, but the next 3 felt good. After I started on the first 800 I just didn't have any endurance in me, I wish I had started with the 800s. I almost tossed my lunch twice, I guess I went too soon after lunch, normally I have a stomach of steel, not today.

I ended up doing 8x400s and hit my paces on 7/8, I dropped the mile at the end and called this run at 5 miles. I just wasn't feeling anymore time on the treadmill, and I know it will make tomorrow's run better I have no issues, I know I worked as hard as I could today.

Hoping for a peaceful easy 6 miles long before the sun comes up, praying our non-stop rain will go away so I am not stuck back inside.
