Ugh. I have realized that if I’m going to run in the mornings – and especially if I’m going to run intervals in the morning – then I need to do a longer warm-up. Usually I jog for 4-6 minutes to warm up before my first interval. Today I did about 8 minutes and a few more probably wouldn’t have hurt.
My interval speeds were a little erratic but not bad. Not happy about that 7:39 though. I also need to mix up my hard effort day programs. I love the 8 x 400m but I need to do some longer intervals. I don’t because I hate them. Which is a very clear indicator that I’m not good at them. Which is a very clear indicator that I need to be doing them. Noted.
Also, 77 degrees is awesome. There is at least one good thing about working out in the morning before the sun is up.
