Wednesday track practice

Seeing as how it was my last hard practice before my race, coach Vicki decided to kick some ass.

here was her plan -
1600 - recovery
1200 - recovery
800 - recovery
400 - recovery

all at 5k pace.

ok, for me that should have meant about a 9:30 to 9:45 pace. Maybe. Not sure I can hold that for 3 miles but it would be a good try.

so off we go.

I bust out a 7:07 mile. What the hell? Where did that come from? Whose frackin legs were attached to my gorgeous waist?

OK, that was a stretch. But 52 seconds better than my best mile. Unbelievable.
oh, yea, the pain
the gasping for air
i must have been anerobic for the whole mile

so how were the 1200, 800 and 400? good all at 8 minute mile pace.
one helluva of a good pace.

I'm thinking a 3 hour marathon. hehehe

nope. still 4 hour marathon at just under 5 hours. 4:45 would be great
