I’m mixing things up a bit for a little variety by inserting a trail run during the week while the weather is nice. Afternoons are best schedule and safety-wise, given that i run at o-dark-thirty. It was
warm hot today, so I treated the run as a series of hill intervals, walking (and hydrating) throughout the run.
I did 6.8 @ 1:27:43, a 12:48 overall avg pace and a 7:28 avg best pace. Not bad considering the heat (~90°) – I did pretty much the same route one morning last week at 1:11:25, a 10:35 overall avg pace and a 7:17 avg best pace.
All in all, a great afternoon workout.
Training Journal – 7/12/12:
- Current plan: Half-marathon program
- Today’s session: 6 mile Trail Run
- Comments: See above. A bit irked with my Garmin 210 though, as it continually doesn’t track the first .1 miles…I basically started the run at the same point where I ended.
