While I'm sitting here typing and looking at my blog picture of me at the beach, I have just finished my first sub-freezing run of the year. What irony. It was 28 degrees today for my 10-miler with 4x1 mile intervals (plus 1x1/2 mile for good measure! ha!). It was nice and sunny and I dressed appropriately and very much enjoyed the run. Well, as much as anyone can enjoy tough intervals, that is. Perhaps I should say I enjoyed the warm-up, cool-down and recovery between intervals! :-)
I haven't done intervals for a while. It has been probably over 2 months. I was very happy with how they went considering. Yes, they were a bit inconsistent. Yes, I started too fast. I'm still happy with them. So there!
2 mile warm-up in 15:52
- 6:22 - Woah, red!
- 6:26 - Slow down, kiddo!
- 6:43 - That's more like it.
- 6:43 - Sweet consistency.
- 3:24 - a pinch to grow an inch?
1.5 mile cool-down in 12:1910 miles total in 1:14:34.
