Posted on a Wednesday. Yup, I’m good at this timely posting thing.
The leader of our track Tuesdays usually sends out the workout on Monday afternoon/evening- you know, so we can all mentally prepare for the game. When I got this week’s email it was titled “15 minutes of Hell”- sounds fun right? Here’s how it broke down:
15x :40 @ R pace with :20 recovery
I’ve mentioned a time or 2 dozen that I’m struggling to know where my paces should be since I’m technically still working on my injury comeback. My goal was to stick around a 7 min/mile pace- under if possible. The results (in min/mile equivalents)?
7:13 (will anyone notice if I run behind the building?)
6:40 (LAST one- make it count)
Moderate success with success being determined by the fact that I didn’t yak Picky Bar all over the track and wasn’t forced to seek a bathroom spot behind the school. I also ended up with about 1/10th of a mile on each :40 interval so I must have been close to consistent, right?
TOTAL: 4.13 miles/34:27/8:20 avg
Now, if only there were some hills in Houston to prepare me for next weekend’s adventure…
