Decided on doing a short tempo to start getting back into workouts. Planned on doing 4 miles tempo and wanted to see if I could hit 5:30 pace without going to hard. First mile was 5:36 then the last three were 5:30, 5:30, 5:29. Halfway into it I decided to at least get to 20 minutes but that turned out to be almost 4 miles when I hit that mark so I decided to just get to 4 miles. 5:30 pace is definitely a little bit of a stretch for tempo, not quite at that level yet. Need to stick to the 5:35-5:40 range still.

18 miles with a marathon paced tempo thrown in at the end. Started easy for the first 12 and then dropped the pace for the last 6.

Last 6 miles: 6:01, 5:58, 5:58, 5:57, 5:54, 5:49

Wished it would've felt a little smoother, stride felt kind of choppy during the whole thing. Felt alright aerobically, breathing never got too hard, though the heart rate started climbling at the end, so I'm not where I need to be right now. Not worried about it though, plenty of time to improve on this.

First workout of this training cycle - 3 mile w/u, 8 x 1 mile at threshold w/1:00 jog between, 3 mile c/d. Times were:

5:40, 5:35, 5:31, 5:31, 5:30, 5:30, 5:28, 5:19

Pretty controlled effort throughout until pushing the last one a bit. Good to come in under 5:20, and that one was into a slight headwind too. Let's see if I can get into 2:30 marathon shape by April.

Long run/workout: 2 mile warmup, 6 miles MP, 1 mile recovery, 6 miles MP followed by a 1 mile push at threshold pace, then 2 mile cooldown.

First 6: 6:00-5:53-5:52-5:51-5:50-5:49

Mile easy in 7:05

Next 6 + threshold mile: 5:51-5:49-5:46-5:50-5:48-5:44-5:29

Starting off this cycle in good shape. This is a great sign.

Track workout: 6x1K + 4x400 with 400m jogging recovery between repeats. Been a little while since I've done a track workout, so doing these paces felt uncomfortable from the start. Also there was some wind. The extra straightaway for 1K repeats meant the even reps had unfavorable wind and the odds had favorable.

Splits: 3:10, 3:10, 3:09, 3:11, 3:11, 3:12 and 70, 70, 70, 68 for the 400s

Wanted to stay close to 3:10 for the workout, so was pretty much there other than slowing down a bit on the last one. Part of it might've been the wind, but I think I also just mentally backed off on it. Not happy about that. Hopefully on a better day I would've been able to stay under 3:10 for the second half instead of slowing down a little.

Long run moved to Sunday due to Christmas. Plan was to do 2 mile warmup, 3 mile tempo, 8 miles easy, 3 mile tempo, 2 mile cooldown.

1st tempo- 17:01 (5:46-5:40-5:35)

8 easy- 7:05-7:15 pace

2nd tempo- 16:33 (5:31-5:32-5:30)

Had some trouble getting up to speed on the first tempo, couldn't seem to get the watch to read faster than 5:45, finally got a little better towards the end. 2nd tempo was faster, settling into a 5:30 pace, though after about 2 miles I was worried I wouldn't be able to make it through without stopping. Fortunately did make it straight through. Figured there was really no reason to stop because, though difficult, the pace wasn't slipping and I seemed to have been holding it fine. I figure it's not supposed to be easy anyways.
