PM: Decided to brave it and do a 60%. I think I've been scared to try, stupid I know, but I don't think I wanted to face the horrible time/pace I knew I'd get and have the reminder that I'm pretty out of shape. But today I decided to face the sad truth that my time is slipping away and the progression run is getting closer every day. If I can't do a 60 then how can I finish the progression run? To ease myself into it I settled on half the regular distance, 3 miles. That much I felt I could do. I warmed up 1.5 miles then started. I couldn't remember what 60% pace was (it's been 14 months or more since I've done any faster workouts), guessed it was 6:20-6:45 pace. So I shot for 6:45 pace. The first and last miles each had a little over a half mile of uphill but the rest was downhill. Splits were 6:44.0, 13:12.12 (6:28.12), 19:56.65 (6:44.53). My watch says 6:39 average. I did stop at Bicentennial for a quick bathroom break around the second mile. But considering it was my first time I'm happy with it. I've got a long way to go before I'm ready for the progression run, but I did better than I thought I would today.
Evening: 3 miles with Angie.
