Good Tuesdays and long winter swims

The last couple of weeks the medium-long runs on Tuesday were surprisingly fast. I did 7:09 min/mile on a 13-miler last Tuesday and 7:03 on a 11-miler yesterday. It is a bit strange, because it happens after a hard interval session on Monday. Even my Saturday long runs are slower than that, and I supposed to be rested before those.

Obviously two runs don’t provide enough data for any analysis. We’ll see if the trend persists.

On the other note, the last couple of swimming workouts felt really tough. My arms feel tired and at the end of the workout pace deteriorates to almost a still-stand. To make things worse the long course is back in the MIT pool. I feel horribly slow there. The first (usually fastest) 100 I did in 1:37! It was close to 1:20 on the short 25 yard course.
