Mile Repeats

Joined the cross country team for some mile repeats on a grassy field. They were running them at their 5K pace so I joined the varsity guys.

I didn't have much time to warm-up but thankfully it worked out okay. Didn't pay much attention to the splits but each one averaged 5:58/mile with two minutes rest in between. I think the course might have been a little short though, it felt too easy, but a pretty good interval session all the same.

Afterwards, hit a three mile cool down on the roads. Great running weather with the cold front now passed through. Cutting this entry short as I'm ridiculously hungry.

w/u Ran .2 miles @ 6:31/mile pace. Grassy fields.
4 X 1 mile repeats w/ 2:00 rest @ 5:58/mile pace. Grassy fields.
c/d Ran 3.0 miles @ 7:37/mile pace. Roads.

Grassy fields, paved roads on cooldown.
Slightly hilly.
Mid 60s, sunny.
New Balance MT110 (w/u and intervals), Saucony Kinvara 3 (cooldown), shorts, short sleeved shirt.

no easy about it. Sounds like an honest workout!
