…which is funny because I wore my Adidas Boosts yesterday when I did my speed work.
6×800 + .1 added onto the end of the last interval to make it a 5K. I did short active recovery intervals between each where I stopped my watch. I’m not trying to pretend that this happened with any recovery time factored in.
It may not be the real thing, but this was so exciting for me. I could have literally passed out from the excitement…or from the fact that I pushed so hard for this. It’s a low mileage week for me – my long run on Saturday is only 6 miles – so I thought maybe I’d have a little bit of fun. THIS was fun.
I’ve never seen a “teen” on my watch when running 3 miles EVER. The last time I had a speed workout this good was here and it was basically the exact same thing except my recovery was shorter and more active this time.
This time my results were better. which means I’m getting stronger.
Sometimes I doubt myself and this was exactly the boost I needed.
Have you ever had an unexpected performance boost that renewed your confidence?
