Before I start going into the workout, here's what is funny about me. I make a strict plan before I go out and run because if I allow there to be any room for question, I might talk myself out of doing something. So, this time, I decided to run to the left and ALWAYS follow the curb, to the left, no matter where it takes. And that's what I did. I. DID. NOT. STRAY. FROM. THE. PLAN.
Lap 1: (warm up lap) walk 5 minutes/jog 5 minutes 10:03, .82 miles
Lap 2: (1st interval set - 6 minute run) .65 miles 9:17/mi pace
Lap 3: (rest portion of first interval set) .26 miles 19:24 pace
*I swear I wasn't walking this slow, I stopped and took some pics and I seemed to do this a lot so I don't know what I was doing :)
Lap 4: (2nd interval) .63 miles 9:30/mi pace
Lap 5: 5 mintes .28 miles 17:33 pace
Lap 6: (3rd) .64 miles 9:21 pace
Lap 7: 5 min .22 23:05 pace
*so I think I like, stretched my calves, blew a snot rocket, I don't know what I was doing
Lap 8: .60 10:00 pace
*this was my last interval and I had a HUGE hill (thornblade... bleh...) I'll explain below
Lap 9: 5 min .28 17:53 pace
cool down lap: 3 min, .23 miles 13:00 pace
pretty house in one of my culdesacs I visited... must follow left curb
another one. I hope they weren't wondering why this crazy girl was taking pics of their house
the little doggy that visited me
an example of the hills, although it doesn't look as treacherous here as it does in person. Especially when this is all there is... up and down and up and down
I'm totally loving the Irises this spring.. may be my new fav flower
Is it hilly in your area?
Do you do any tempo work?
What's your fav spring flower?
