This morning's run was one of those workouts that sort of stood out on the week's training plan--10 times 1 mile repeats at half marathon pace? Yikes. It sounded so scary that instead of my usual recruitment technique of waiting until the night before to find company, I sent out an email a whole 4 days ahead of time, which for me counts as some seriously advanced planning. Thank you Kim and Caroline for being so willingly suckered, I mean swayed, into things!
I also busted out some new running attire for the occassion. These are the new K-Swiss racerback tanks, my current fave.
As it turned out, this session was more about pacing than high end fitness. And, because I actually managed to resist the urge to go out too fast (for once!), this was quite possibly the easiest track workout I have ever done. With warm up and cool down, it was a breezy 15 mile workout with the repeats descending from 6:25 to 6:00 pace. A little recovery spin, masters swim, and trip to Costco rounded out the day.
