To be honest, I was not looking forward to today’s workout. It only got worse when my coach asked us if we would rather do 5 mile repeats at threshold pace or 3 miles at a faster pace. We (as a team) chose the latter and it was pretty hard. I wasn’t feeling amazing but I was pleasantly surprised with what I did. I had to go at sub 6 minute pace and achieved that for the first 2 miles and then my coach let me go a little easier on the last set. I paced the girls at around 6:30 pace for the fist two laps and then went off for the last 800. Overall it was a tiring day and I feel like I got some more “skill points” in my persistence.
