Springside Track - 12 miles total. 30 minute warmup with 800 meters @ MP, 8 x 1000 w/ 200 meter jogs, 22 minute cool down
Splits (recovery): 3:42.9 (1:08.9), 3:45.7 (1:11), 3:40.3 (1:14.8), 3:40.6 (1:13.3), 3:38.6 (1:17.2), 3:42.3 (1:17.6), 3:45.1* (1:18.2), 3:37.5, averaged 3:41.6 (74-75 second recovery jogs)
*a second or two long because I missed the split button and had to double fire.
Pace was off goal of 3:35-3:38, but that was a bit ambitious I think. Effort was good today. These were at my half marathon pace from last year at Philly RnR (~5:56 pace), so we will see what this year brings. Ultimately, this workout was a success and I don't feel like I can say that about many after Boston. I could have knocked out two more, but I got plenty of work in for the morning and the rests were short (as they should be with Ks). Weather started in the upper 50s, so there's something to that as well.
I haven't been running long, but I think tracks were places where people went to run fast safely and with accurate measurements. I've seen Cross Fitters doing their weird chain things near the track, jump roping too close to lane 1, older folks barely running in lane 1, people walking in lane 1, people running the opposite direction in lane 1, people WALKING BACKWARDS in lane 1. Glad to see people out exercising and enjoying time with their families, but they are driving me crazy!
PM: Treadmill next to Megan - 5 miles in 39:12. Did some weights (core stuff mostly)
