13 miles with 3-4 sets of (mile-800)
16 miles with 4x(3-2-1) with 90s rest between each
2 nights in NYC
For a finals week, this is an impressive mileage. I knocked out one final on Monday this week by spending 12 hours locked in my work office. I knocked out my strategy final on Friday morning before I headed to NYC for a quick rendezvous with my MBA classmates. I felt really good about my mid-week workout and knocked my solo long run out of the (Central) park. I'm always surprised when I run fast solo because it's about 100x harder than running with a training buddy. Fortunately for me, there were about 10,000 people running in Central Park because it was probably the first time these New Yorkers had seen the sunshine and a clear roadway in months. For that reason, it felt like I was running a race and passing people left and right. It was very motivating!
I had a great time hanging out with my classmates, celebrating their birthdays (Happy Birthday Kishor). I am glad that they still respect me as a person considering that I left them around midnight because I turn into a pumpkin at any time after that. I'm in the middle of a training cycle, so I needed my beauty sleep. Plus, I wanted to be able to run with Sarah the next morning in the park.
