I really wanted to run an easy pace the whole hour and not worry about mileage, but I got a carried away thinking about the upcoming races in a couple months and decided to fast finish the last 15 minutes or so. I don't plan on or want to do that often as I fully believe the recovery runs are as important to my body as my distance or speed workouts, but once in awhile I can't help it.
In the coming weeks, I will get a better idea where I project to be in relation to my Ridgewood Run 5K goal as well as my Franklin Lake Triathlon 5M goal. I am confident in the base I am building. It really just boils down to the speed work I do and how my body responds to it.
I will review my goals shortly and will continue to revise if needed.
