This morning I had a practice with my tennis team. In the first round, my partner, Anda, and I lost 4-1, but we did have a lot of good, long points. In the second round, I lost 7-6, 2-0 in singles. Not my best effort. In the third round, my partner, Whitney, and I won 5-4. We need to keep playing together to practice for our tournament at the end of the month!
This afternoon, I did the next run on my training schedule. It called for 2 x 2 mi at race pace (6.7 mph), alternating with 2 x 5 min at 5 mph, and then 2 x 1 mi at race pace, alternating with 2 x 3 min at 5 mph. Since my race pace gives about a 9-min mile, I went by time instead. As a result, the run took me 70 min and the distance totaled 7.36 mi. This was a tough run. The first couple miles weren't too bad, but the race pace intervals definitely got hard.
