Felt nowhere near as good as I did yesterday probably due to a hard bike ride in the morning that I was still tight from (was going to be late to class so I raced up the hill to the U) and didn&#39;t strech afterwards. The extra .2 in the planned 2 mile run was when I got passed by another running (I was running about a 9min/mile while he seemed to be going 7:30ish). My competitveness revived shortly after and my last lap was a sub 7 due to having to pass him during it (5.5 laps is one mile).<br /> &nbsp;</p> Tue, 09 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 08, 2018 http://Vidal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-08-2018.html <p>I rode my commuter bike to the Student life center for a swim/run workout. Since getting back into swimming during the winter break I&#39;ve mainlybeen focusing on my refining my technique. I would do the occasional surge to spice up the workout but it was mainly an even paced 1000 meters. Afterwards I wanted to break in my new Asics Gel Kayanos 24 so I ran a couple miles at about a 9 minute pace (no watch) on the indoor track. They&#39;re an excellent shoe with the perfect amount of support and cushioning.</p> Mon, 08 Jan 2018 07:00:00
