Apparently Temple Run miles don’t count, so today I had another go at the speed session I skipped yesterday. Mile reps, that went something like this:
Mile 1 (warm up): Decisions, decisions
As I left the house I was undecided about whether to try the speed session or not. By the end of mile one, the speed session was on.
Mile 2 (fast): Wind assisted
A speedier than called for mile, assisted by a fearsome tailwind.
Mile 3 (recovery): Innocuous
Memorable for being unmemorable.
Mile 4 (fast): Dogged
Almost collided with a dog.
Mile 5 (recovery): Ow flip* ow!
Fell off the pavement. Ricked ankle good and proper. The air may or may not have turned blue.
Mile 6 (fast): Wind resisted
The wind giveth and the wind taketh away. Running to stand still.
Mile 7 (recovery): Interminable
Seemingly endless, but it did eventually end.
Mile 8 (fast): Dribble and squeak
I’m not a pleasant sight (or sound) when I try to run fast!
Mile 9 (partial): The warm down
Hi honey, I’m home!
