Before everyone gets their undies in a bunch at me, when I say slow, I mean relative to where I want to be. I'm comparing to myself (and my speedy training partner). And I'm not complaining, I am just noting that I still have a lot of work to do.
Today's workout was a "see where I'm at" sort of a thing. Peyton is running Peachtree next week, so I did his 10k simulation workout. Warm-up, then skips and strides, then 6k @ roughly 10k pace, then 400 float, then 400 at best daily effort. I wanted progress from 3:28 for the first k down to 3:24. Once we got rolling (and I was left in the dust!) I was stuck at 3:30 per k. Managed a 3:26 for the last one, but just felt slow.
So, lots more work to do. Somehow need to get economical at today's pace...lactate threshold needs a big bump. One thing I have working against me is I've focused almost entirely on teaching my body to burn fatty acids for the last 5+ years, so I need some major re-training of my energy systems to be able to effectively process and burn lactate.
