Run Journal - #50-51

#50 Details: 2 x 1600 meters/4 min
Shoes: Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit

These speed runs are getting weird. 1600 meters is essentially a mile so today's "speed" run was for a whole mile with a 4 minute recovery walk/jog before doing it a second time. I managed the speed sections at 7:45 and 8:05 but that's not exactly speed, even by my standards. Still, I imagine these days server a specific purpose. They are quite hard; I'll say that, and maybe that's part of the point.

#51 Details: 20 easy
Shoes: Hoka Huaka

Just an easy 20 minute run so not much to say. The only thing I'll make note of here is that I did get a stabbing achilles pain about 5 minutes into the run. I haven't had that happen in well over a week so I was not pleased to see it return. I'm hoping that this was a not a sign of the issue returning or worsening.

Tomorrow is a 40 minute tempo run. That's one of the "long" tempo runs that usually kick my butt. Should be fun. ;)
