So I won't be blogging.
I know you are totally bummed.
To make you feel better, here is a picture of puppies.

See you soon.

The run was great and pretty easy to keep pace, but not easy overall. Spending 30 minutes of a 50 minute run in the middle of the week at race pace isn't extremely difficult but the assistance of a breakfast burrito sitting squarely in my gut didn't make the first interval pleasant.
This workout was felt like it was designed with a marathon in mind. As I was pushing for my last ten minutes, I wasn't as gassed as I have been on longer tempo runs or on old speed work days. It felt like I was working hard but like I had plenty left in the tank. I hope to feel that way at mile 22 in May. I think that is the point. Time will tell.The Not as Good
It took just over six miles to get in this workout safely (with a warm up and cool down) even though the schedule called for four. It was deceptively longer than I thought it would be. As written it was 39 minutes of running. But after running all week, it takes about a mile to warm up and another mile or so to cool down. When scheduling my life around my running schedule I like looking quickly and knowing how long I will be working out...this one took a little more math, and I don't like math.More updates on the training plan as the come. Tomorrow I will be getting my long run in due to travel plans over the weekend. I will be on the road by 5:30am (if not earlier) and will hopefully have lots of pretty pictures and tales to share with all six of you reading the blog.

|I couldn't have asked for a better picture|
In fact, I didn't ask for this one.
