Well, I just went out to try and bang out some mile repeats because I missed them yesterday. I was just to swamped yesterday to make it happen, but had time today. I have to say first of all, this week has not been good. I have been off the rails eating wise, haven't really hydrated well, and just did not get in a training groove. I don't know why, life I guess.
Today was the epitome of the week. I ran the first mile repeat and it was a beast to get through. I ran it in 6:11 and it felt like I did it in 5:11. I cooled down for 5 minutes, as I planned to, and still felt on the verge of getting sick. I scrapped the run. Sometimes you just have to move on.
I have to dial in my nutrition first and foremost starting right now. I will add some serious water consumption and I will be good to go. You are always going to have crappy workouts/weeks pop up. You cannot progress all the time. The key is to move on and think positive. Tomorrow is a new day.
