Track WorkDistance: 5:45 miles
Comments: The post-long-run rest day was filled with a long car ride back to Oregon. This was good in that I was off my feet but not-so-good in that I spent hours sitting in one position. Waking up today I could tell I was still not back to full speed but not so bad skipping the workout would be necessary.
The first lap was not pretty at all. I was kind off all over the place with it and finished surprisingly slow. After that I focused on the task at hand a bit more and performed much better but not quite as good as I did last week.
While the recovering legs couldn't seem to provide, I definitely felt I had more control. Other than the first and final lap, I was able to hone in and focus on the whole lap from start to finish.
So despite the slightly slower speeds, I felt this was a very solid workout. If I can get through the rest of the week with that kind of performance, I think I'll be ready to head back to the heat in Arizona.
