The Last Run

Well hard run anyways.

As I mentioned yesterday we had our last tough run of the training series last night. V02 Max 8miles with 3x1600m. Last year our times for the repeats were 7:10, 7:20 and 7:18. This year I looked up what a 5K pace should be for a 3:35 marathon and 7:06 was the big number. We ran down to the track and then started repeating ..... and we did them in 6:57, 7:03 & 6:55. So we saw a nice big improvement from last night. I think this is my favorite workout of the series.

The Dad picked us up from the track and we headed home to a disappointing Cubs game...but (and I can't believe I am going to say this...) a great Cardinals game...go you red birds!

Alright, meeting time and work to do.

Super job on the VO2 max run! I am so happy to be done with these- VO2 max runs were my least favorite, but then again, I think I said the same thing about LT runs. Enjoy the last week of the taper!
