Training Log - Thursday, July 19, 2012

"Need For Speed" Thursday. Timo decided to join the speed workout group today and although it was a tough one, i think the group might have a new member. Shannon scheduled mile repeats of a special variety. Five 1 mile repeats progressively getting faster with a one mile warm up and cool down. After the cool down, I realized it was way too hot for a really aggressive pace, so I decided to run my first mile at 7:15 minute per mile pace followed by each mile to be 15 seconds faster than the previous one. Recovery jogs in between the repeats were 1 minute. I really struggled on my final mile repeat and Shannon was kind enough to drag my butt along the final mile only slightly slower than goal pace to complete the workout as scheduled. Thanks, buddy! And the 100 mile training continues...
