Tuesday's running was very good with the morning starting out tired and not too sure if I should do the 'pick-ups' or not. I proceeded to do 8 X 45 seconds on/off and felt great doing them. My legs needed that spark and I finished the morning with a little over an hour or running.
Wednesday was probably one of my last runs in Hartely since the sun has been taking away a lot of the base we have been running on. My two loops of easy running went well and I managed to run the last lap rather quick. (maybe too quick for recovery)
Thursday was another morning where I wanted to snooze the alarm clock for hours. I just didn't want to get up. I did and it just goes to show that all a person needs to do is just get up and things improve quickly.
I had to do my 'steady-state' mileage and I am now working up to the hour mark. I did 8 miles at the prescribed pace along with some warm up and warm down miles. Overall a very solid morning.
