A 3 mile tempo rub today made decent use of my lunch hour. After a 1/2 mile warm up, I ran the next 3 miles at a 7:00/mile pace.
I have broken down the basics of my running into three categories. Distance, intensity (speed), and frequency make up the basic foundation of my training.
Today, I focused on intensity for one of the last times before my race. As I get closer to next saturday, intensity and distance will decrease. However, frequency will remain the same.
It is important to stay committed and fresh going into a race. This is why I take the pressure of the body by relieving intensity and distance. However, I still run often to keep my mind focused.
9 days to go.
