ORN: 4.5 miles, 43:11; w/ two 1-mile repeats at 8:37 and 8:48
At best, it only happens once a month. Usually, only about every three months.
To have a full moon and a clear sky is a real treat. It lights up the normal darkness of the morning run. The grey/blue color it adds to the woods and the trail is fascinating. What a treat. And to do so in 63 degree weather is an added treat.
One of the unusual things about the Galloway program is its emphasis on speed work. Not just endurance. One element is the mile repeats. It is a mainstay of his marathon program that I'll be on in the fall and an optional element of the half marathon program. So, I'm getting used to it. The objective is to just run a mile at or just below the target race pace, to get your legs used to the turnover rate. Today is the second day I've used this and will continue to do this one day a week. Will it help the speed?? We'll see.
Enjoy your Tuesday. And kudos to anyone who sees the connection on today's title.
