I had one last thing to do on my wedding week checklist today and that was track.A last good workout before the Tennessee fun begins! On the menu was SEVEN 1000-meter dashes. Actually, they weren’t supposed to be dashes. My coach told me to stick at 4:30 for each rep and to definitely not run faster than 4:20. If this had been a test I would have scored a 28% because my times were: 4:16, 4:17, 4:17, 4:19, 4:17, 4:22, and 4:20.
Even though I “beat” the goal time, I didn’t actually win. My coach is having me try and learn how to pace myself and “read” my body at different effort levels. I obviously am struggling to understand what a non-sprint but non-long run pace feels like! I have two gears basically.
- What’s your favorite type of apple?
- Any tips on how to “read” yourself when pacing? (I don’t even know how to phrase this question so am clearly lost)
- When was the last wedding you went to?
