3 miles warmup, 2x1200m w/ 200m rec, CD for 10. Tried working down to tempo during the warmup and that was embarrasingly slow based on effort so I thought about bailing on the 1200's altogether, but decided just to try. Ran 3:49 and 3:40. Both felt controlled, first one I dropped a couple of seconds every lap and the second one was even 73's. I knew all this mileage had to apply somewhere in my running, and I finally figured it out; my recovery time is way better than it's ever been. After a mile or two after the second 1200 I felt like I hadn't even done any hard running, honestly wanted to throw more 1200's in but decided the smart thing would be to wait. I'm excited for when I have higher volume workouts, but increasing that is more listening day by day to the body than planning something out, and it's a finer line with mileage this high, at least right now. Not a crazy workout but a good starting point.

5 very easy in the afternoon. Went home because I forgot my student ID, but about to head to the gym for weights. Hopefully I recover faster this time.

Eugene, I totally agree with your approach on building up workouts and speed training by being able to increase mileage first. I think this is a key aspect of what our coaches in high school were having us miss out on. We would do lots of speed, but we were lacking a lot of the base building that higher volume mileage benefits us before starting those speed workouts.

One way or another they helped mold me into the person I am today as high school sports coaches... as a runner I learned nothing though lol

Only reason we won region is Aaron and I trained all summer trying to beat each other, and Mason, Kedric and Christian just had supreme talent

Coaches did help us perfect our racing tactics that last year though. Every good team race we had that was pretty essential.
