PM: 15.2 miles, averaged 7:46

60' steady easy to moderate, 20' @ half marathon effort, 5' jog, 6 x 45" strides, 20' down

Ventured out on the roads today for the first time in many months (other than to run through the neighborhood to get to the park) before returning to the park for the faster portion. It was very windy, some sparse light rain. Managed to hit 5k in 20' (6:26). Quite humbling.

Crisp. Dark the last 3 miles. Nice that a recovery run isn't 9:30 pace any more.

Workout

30' up, 20 x 1' @ crest load/critical velocity w/ 20" recovery jogs, 22' down

Interesting workout. Tough to get into a rhythm with all the slowing down and speeding up. I tried to imagine the effort as being between my 5k strides and my half marathon effort work. I think it work ed out okay. A bit warm and windy. Paces ended up being 6:15-5:43, which is about all I could manage for strides about 5 weeks ago.

I am not sure how we will be extending these but I have been warned the big boy of version of this looks like 10 x 3' with 30" recoveries.
