Slept in a little bit today and waited until the sun came out to do a mostly track workout. Plan was for 9 miles with 4 mile track tempo run in the middle.
Goal was to not focus on pace so much but just to keep my HR in the half marathon pace HR range which for me is around 175-185. This was my first time trying out the new track at the Junior High. Pretty nice and even nicer that it's only a half mile from home.
I figured I'd be around 7 min pace and I was right. Felt a bit harder than I wanted it to but I've run decent miles this week and this the 3rd focused/harder workout for the week so my legs weren't so fresh. Overall I think it was a decent workout that will pay benefits later.
4 miles overall time 28:03 (7:01 pace). Ave HR 182.
