Today's schedule called for speedwork, two miles at all out speed with half mile recovery walks and a one mile warmup and a one mile cooldown. Wow, I really though I went prettty fast, but when I got home and looked at the data, I was very disappointed. I run my 5K and 10K races faster than that. I could blame the heat, or maybe I just didn't push hard enough since my heart rate monitor confirmed that I was in the 90% range. I'm not sure, but I will be beating these numbers by 30 seconds per mile next week. The temps were actually quite mild this monring at 6AM, even though the humidity was already up there. Considering the warmup and cooldown, I ended up running close to 5 miles. I am really disgusted with my pace this morning. I'll just have to write it off as part of the training and tell myself that I will do better. I need to get to be just as motivated for speed training as I am for races and that is very hard for me to do indeed. I am sure other runners have similar problems.
