Got out for 10+ tonight with kind of a weird longer distance/strength workout:
2.5 miles up up then 4 sets of 1000 meters moderate>500 meters harder>500 meters easier. The bad footing and hills on the grass loop I did the workout on certainly slowed things down, but it was a very challenging so hopefully it will help me develop a bit of strength.
Tomorrow will try to run 2 easy 6 milers to give the body some rest before an 8k Sunday followed by a long run.
Also did core tonight, but no free weights.
got to start doing that.
