I hit the track this morning to put in this week's quality workout: 1 mile intervals. I hadn't hit the track since training for my May 5k and it felt good. I found it easy to hit my target paces due to the flat surface and the presence (at least for one interval) of another fast runner who I used as a rabbit without their knowledge. I also think the hours of base mileage I am working on are beginning to payoff in the delay of fatigue. Amazingly my heart rate was well under 90% of my max even at 11 mph!
Thursday quality workout:
- plan: warm; 3x1600 in 6:54w/800 jogs; Cool - 7 miles
- actual: 1 mile warm; 6:38/6:36/6:55, 1 mile cool - 6.01 miles
