I haven't been able to complete Furman FIRST speed workouts since JUNE, before the big blow-out. But it looks like I'm on my way back. After 5 long months.
Key workout #1: 1 mi warm-up, 4x1000m in 4:44, 1 mi cool-down. DONE!
Key workout #2: 1 mi warm-up, 4 mi tempo @ 7:34 pace, 0.5 mi cool-down. DONE!
Key workout #3: 10 mi long run. (To be completed this weekend)
