Day 10 - Mile Repeats
Today I had a speedwork session scheduled. I knew it was going to be hard because I was all day on my feet in Court and thereabout and in high heels. But it was not.
Schedule called for 2 X 1600 and a total of 6 miles. I warmed up with 2 miles at a slower than easy pace and proceeded to do 2 mile repeats with 800s recovery jogs. Then I ended the workout with another 2 miles at a slower than easy pace.
Here are the stats:
Felt Like: 99F
Dew Point: 75
Pounds Lost: 0 lbs. (I still cannot comprehend this)
Goal Pace: 10:56mm - 11:26mm
Actual Pace: 11:37mm
Average HR: 126
As soon as I left the house, the rain started falling, and the skies turned black. This benefited me although I don't run in the rain, because the temps started coming down. By the time I started the speedwork the temps were much lower.
Felt Like: 78F
Dew Point: 74
Pounds Lost: 0 lbs.
Goal Pace: 8:58mm - 9:18mm
Actual Pace: 9:11mm
Recovery Goal Pace: 11:56 - 12:26mm
Recovery Actual Pace: 12:40mm
Average HR: 144
Then, I cooled down with 2 miles @ 11:48mm followed by a 0.26 walk.
A very tiring but great workout.
