The question is: will this make me faster?

Tuesday - August 16

Run
  • 30m
  • 3.68 miles
  • 08m 09s /Mi

Easy pace, with 6 x 1 min. pickups. Like Doug's workout, I felt like I wanted to do more, but that's probably the point of the taper.

Monday - August 15

Swim
  • 39m 30s
  • 2100.00 yards
  • 01m 53s /100 yards

Made it over to the pool after getting the kids to bed. Unfortunately, I brought the wrong pair of goggles, which were very old and leaky. The kind lifeguard was nice enough to allow me to borrow a pair that they had at the pool. They didn't fit my face very well, and left some slight bruises around my nose, but at least I could finish the workout.

This was a nice, easy pace, one that I can hopefully maintain on Sunday. I tried to focus on good form and body position in the water.

Sunday - August 14

Run
  • 1h 13m 09s
  • 9.00 miles

I maintained my "easy" pace of 8:20 per mile for the first 7 miles, then I picked it up to 7:40 and 7:20 for the last 2 miles. Everything felt good on a nice night to run.
