Actually I didn't even run my distance runs fast enough. I got continuously yelled at for wanting to run like 7:00 miles no matter what day it was.
I was a sprinter at heart and left it all out on the track. Anything over a mile or on the road and it was a completely different story.
It was a result of the multiple stress fractures I was developing, not running too hard on recovery days. We were allowed to run with whomever we wanted on recovery days and the 400m runner and I stuck together for the most part. I was all about recovery on easy days.
