The Fall – Week 11, Speedwork

Posted: October 31, 2013 in Fall Plan
Tags: , , , ,

Workout: Warm [1 mi.], 8x400m @ 1:18-1:22 w/ 200 jog, Cool [1 mi.] Weather: 73 degrees, sunny, windy.

Recap: Fun, but challenging.

Got a couple hunches about this 5K deal thanks to a lot of positive comments after the last run. With that in mind, I’d like to have a little more fun for the next couple of weeks. Fast fun. See where it takes me.

The first step for me was re-conceptualizing what a workout is. Today was about running fast then slow then fast again…8 times. Nothing more. Kind of like being a kid out there to be honest. Stop and go kind of game. Got the heart rate up where I wanted it. It’s all good. On to Saturday’s long run.

All  reps:  1:20 or 1:21

  1. 5:22min/mile is definitely sub 5km pace. Nice work
