Today was the 2x2 mile tempo on the tempo loop today. 3 min recovery in between.

These are definitely the workouts I struggle the most with. I tried my best to have my mind off but the first loop felt pretty fast and so I felt like I was fighting to hang on from the go on the second rep. I fell off before even the one mile mark on the second loop. I was still trying to go as hard as I could but it definitely was even more difficult by myself. It was a little frustrating because I feel like I do so well on the track workouts and the quick fast stuff never gets the best of me but I have felt that the strength based workouts I struggle with much more often.

I need to force myself to surge every time a gap opens up on these kind of workouts because if I don't it will guaranteed get really tough when I'm separated from them. And if that meant I would blow up later, I need to be okay with that and accept that is always a possibility when we're running fast. 

First loop I had 10:31, second loop I had 10:49.

By myself today, but nice and easy. Legs were a little tight.

Today's workout was very very difficult. My legs felt fine but again my stomach was really really bothering me on the warm up, the whole workout, and on the cooldown. I'm not sure why because it was yesterday too. It has felt so much better the last few months than it was in the fall but I saw today as a good mental test if nothing else and I was actually very very happy I was able to lock in  and mostly stay on given how my stomach was feeling.

First 5 miles went by so fast and I felt great. Then my stomach really started to bother the second half and I had to slow it down a good amount.
