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.
