5 easy miles over to Hurricane City Park and back home.  It is pretty bad when you have to make two bathroom stops during a 5 mile run.  Actually it might be a good thing, I'm sure I've got some junk food in the system from the weekend road trip.  Shin pain was worse today than it has been the last few days, of course I haven't ran the last few days.

Big Workout #15 5x1600m @ LT pace with 1 lap recovery (3:00 min)

Well, last time I did 1600m repeats they didn't go to good, that was a few weeks ago over at Pine View with Steve Hooper in temp's over 100 and still dealing with my chest infection. I knew tonight would probably be a little better since the temp's were right around 88 once I got started.  Also, I'm over the chest problem, but have been dealing with a strange shin/knee pain.

Anyway I did a two mile warm-up over to Hurricane City Park, then back to Hurricane High.

Got right into the workout

1-5:48 The first two laps were pretty slow, but I picked it up pretty good the second half

2-5:49 Felt better than the first repeat

3-5:45 I felt really good on this repeat

4-5:44 Was starting to struggle and then Jeff Adamson came along on his bike and paced   
me the last lap which helped.

5- 5:42 Really tired to push it the last mile and ended up running my fastest repeat on the last one.

This was a really good workout, considering the LT pace was only supposed to be around 6:00 minute, but I was feeling pretty good so I pushed it a little harder, still not all out.

Did a two mile cool.

I did a similar workout last year around this same time and most of the repeats were around the same time, except I think last year I was stopping my watch right when it beeped at a mile, this year I just ran 4 laps even, so it made the repeats 1600m in length.

Still feeling fat, which isn't good with the marathon coming up.

Why do we do this kind of stuff? 23 miles down the course today. I didn't feel as good as last week, but it was still a good effort, we ran quite a bit faster from the start, so I didn't have as much left as I was hoping to really push the last 10, but at least I was able to still get in a pretty good workout.  Overall time was 2:40:30 (6:58 pace), so that is pretty good for a training run.  I don't think I want to do any more miles on the course until the race.  We had a very large group this morning which made it nice, passed lots of people out training this morning.
