7 miles speed
Back to the track this morning! After laying around on the couch sick for 2 days, I wasn’t sure how this speed session was going to go. On my schedule was a ladder workout, where I get slightly faster with each interval. The 1.5 mile warm-up was interesting. I felt like an old lady dusting off the cobwebs on my joints. I decided to not worry about pace today and instead just keep myself in the no talk/5K zone for each interval (knowing full well that my pace today wouldn’t be consistent with my normal 5K pace).
1200m at 7:06 pace* — 7:09 actual; not too shabby!
1000m at 7:00 pace* — 7:07 actual
800m at 6:58 pace* — 7:26 actual; that was ugly and really slow
600m at 6:55 pace* — 7:23 actual; clearly I’m tired
400m at 6:50 pace* — 6:44 actual; did that just happen?! I actually beat my time?! Maybe there is some sprinter in me after all!
1.5 mile cool-down
*400m rest between each interval
