am--10 Long Run w/ 2x 15-min. tempo sections. We did a big loop onto the River Trail. I wasn't sure how this was going to go, but it went well. I felt strong. We got progressively stronger, and the group split a bit. RHR--57.
pm--2.5 Ran in the school because of lightning. Should be the worst of runs, but hearing a big group of girls sing High School Musical songs brings joy to the soul. I have the coolest job ever. Erged 2k (8:45.1) after.
I also finished another small book--Speed Work for Distance Training by Bob Schul. He offers a training method based off Mihaly Igloi's interval/effort workouts. I'm intrigued by the idea of many short reps to stave off any anaerobic detriment while keeping the heart rate up. This is something to look into more. Schul, an Olympic champion in the 5k, also wrote a biography that is in my queue.
