Total time: 1 hr, 42 minutes
Total distance: 6 miles
So, at some point, I figured I should at least get an idea of what six miles looks like. So I did this through what I like to call EXTREME INTERVALS. By which I mean, I didn't do intervals by time - I did them by distance. I ran
2 miles, walked 0.5 mile, ran 1.5 miles, walked 1 mile, ran 1 mile.
It was pretty intense. There were several points where I didn't think I was
going to be able to do it, but the other part of my brain was like, "but
you have to. You're not going to get any better if you don't push
yourself." So I did. And it was hard. But I feel so much more prepared for my 10K race next month than I had at any point up until now. I may even survive the thing. I probably won't be able to run all of it, and that's okay.
