Ugh, a few months have passed since I last ran a 5 by a mile workout. Ok, maybe more than a few months. Ok, it has probably been over a year.
The important point here is my need to get my “but” back in gear again. The lack of regular speed work was reather apparent. The first couple miles felt like I was running in sand. Then, slowly over the next 3 repeats I began to grind down the splits to something that looked more respectable.
With 7 more weeks until my next marathon, the grinding needs to pick up the pace if I am going to be ready.
