Glad you enjoyed your run. Hope the results are good from the vet.

THURSDAY
Distance: 4 miles (5 miles total)
Intervals: :30/:30 (1-2)
:40/:30 (3-4)
Location: Gym Track
Enjoyment Level: 3 (out of 3)

Mile Splits: 10:45 / 10:29 / 10:17 / 9:58

Notes: Did not feel at all lethargic today. My running brain was pretty much back on from the start. I was just a little tired. I think that was probably 25% flu recovery and 75% hard ST workout in the morning. I ran fairly late in the day to give myself some time to recover between bouts. I probably should have taken a nap, but I just read and lounged around (after feeding the cats, of course). Since it was fairly late in the afternoon (4pm), the gym was on the warm side, but not too bad. I felt pretty good, but 4 miles was pretty much my limit today.

We'll see if I can go a little farther tomorrow. I'm not sure when I'll be able to run, though, since I will be waiting for a report from the vet on some tests that we sent off to TX A&M. At least, I hope the results will be back tomorrow.

It sounds like you are good at listening to your body.

I know exactly what you mean. I experience that brain switch during every group training run - it usually takes me 2-3 miles to get to it.
That's awfully fast for 20/40s. You'll leave ME in the dust. But then I expect that. emoticon

SUNDAY
Distance: 4 miles

Notes: I ran one mile then switched to walking. Even though the flu symptoms were all gone and I felt OK prior to the run, I quickly discovered that I had very little energy for running.

WEDNESDAY
Distance: 4 miles (5 miles total)
Intervals: :20/:40 (1-3)
Freeform (4)
Location: Gym Track
Enjoyment Level: 2+ (out of 3)

Mile Splits: 11:56 / 11:53 / 11:40 / 10:28

Notes: I felt much better today than on Sunday. My energy level was closer to normal, although I did feel sluggish for the first 3 miles. The problem seemed to be as much mental as physical, as if my running brain was switched off. And then, as mile 4 began, it woke up and I suddenly felt good. It is hard to explain, because I wasn't feeling bad up until then. So I guess it's more that I suddenly felt positive, both mentally and physically energized. Like my brain suddenly decided not only to let me run but to be happy about it.

I will probably switch to :30/:30 tomorrow and see how it goes. I'm still playing distance by ear.
