50' @ Aerobic Threshold + 4 x 45" Strides

I went to the gym as it was already climbing into the 80s when I was ready to run. I had planned on going anyway. I warmed up 2 miles, but I was supposed to do 30'. I somehow got confused. Workout called for 50' @ aerobic threshold, so I figured just a click or two down from the aerobic builders I have been doing. I figured in decent conditions 6:40s would feel quite comfortable given for the faster efforts I have been averaging low-6:40s. 6:40 was too hard on treadmill, so I backed off a bit (averaged 6:56). My goal was to keep my HR under 170 for almost the entire run and keep the average around 165-168 (averaged 166). I felt a little rough at times, but I think I am not used to have to concentrate on the treadmill. I got through feeling strong, but my feet were slipping on the belt from all the sweat. Switched treadmills to complete the workout. Cooled down 3.3 miles.

Deviated from my typical lunch and demolished a Pot Belly sub after as it was almost 2:00PM and I hadn't eaten anything.

That's a lot of MP miles! What distance is 45" strides? Strong work!
