OC speedwork with Court; pond loop; 81 with sun going down; 60%. 60 DP; 1720; SSE 6-10.
Got out too late due to work; 2 mi wu with drills; decided to cut it off at 2 mi worth not wanting to risk anything as sun was setting and getting dark. 4 x 1/2 mi; ran solo; three hard and one thinking more about make it feel comfortable:
2:44; 2:46; 2:51; 2:43. Very pleased with effort and workout. All sub-18 and even hitting sub-17 pace again.
Not so pleased with weight as stress and poor sleep and poor eating = going wrong direction. High miles are great when not needing to worry about lb loss for me; but easier to lose at 50-60 mileage. As really want rest of month to be 5K PR focus, I am going to back off miles to hopefully: sleep better; lose lbs; have more pep in legs on speed days. Fingers crossed it all works out cause not getting any younger!
