I was really on track this morning. And another great morning for a run. I was just below my easy pace @10:20. I've been using this week to work on my feet turnover and deep breathing. I'm pretty impress how much of a difference it makes when you stay focus on your running. I've been looking for my own stride now for a while. I have often, in races focus on someone way in front of me and tried to imitate there steps but it never last for long. On my long runs I try to picture different people running and try to imitate their form that too never last for long. So gradually I'm searching for my on form. I'm pretty sure I have a form now, but I'm looking to improve it and be more efficient. I'll see how it goes this week focusing on quickly turning over my feet and deep breathing. So far I'm feeling really good about it.
I got a chance to go to track with the group. I got there a little late again so I warmed through the park. I got back to the track just as my group was finishing their 1st set of 1000's we were doing 5 of them tonight with .25 jog between. I did all 5 and I'm still feel good. Just hope I did not over do it for my Tempo tomorrow.
