I needed a couple of days of recovery. I had a great week last week, but was exhausted by the workouts, and really needed to let my body recover and prepare for next week. I am now ready, energized, and excited for another week of speed training, strength training, and some endurance to round things out! Depending on how I feel this week, I may do a third day of speed training. I expect that I will at the very least increase the speed distance I do, having 2 workouts last week at 1.5 miles in total distance per workout; perhaps this week I’ll get to 2 miles in total distance.

That would be 4 800s, instead of the 3 that I did this week. Or 8 400s, instead of the 6 that I did this week. Also, if I get a third workout in, that would likely be a shorter workout, like a 200s workout; and it would 16 of them to be a 2-mile workout. That will be tough!!
