God, I hope this weather sticks around for awhile. It is just beautiful every day. Eventually we are in trouble. However, today is not that day. I had a nice 5 + miler today. The third day in a row and no pain or soreness, or even tired legs. I feel pretty good. I have 21+ miles in for the week and I look forward to another 5-6 tomorrow.
As a way of finishing up the workout strong and teaching my legs to move even at the end of a run, I ran 10 sprints at the end of the workout. After my 5+ miles, I walked about 100 meters. I then proceeded to sprint 60-70 meters and walk back to the beginning. When I got back to the start, I immediately started off on the next one. I did this 10 times. I started at about 75% and by the end, I was up to about 90% effort.
Running hard on tired legs can help with your focus, form, and getting those legs moving for the end of races/workouts when you are sapped. Each time I went, I focused on my arm swing, my forward lean, my loose muscles, and my control. An added bonus it's something different than just going out and running a few miles!
