Well, running continues to be fresh and new for me as this morning I did my first ever short-interval workout. After a 1 mile warmup, I did 8x30/30, then a 1 mile cooldown. Here are the stats.
Total distance - 2.7 miles
Venue - Memorial Park
Warmup (1 mile) - 13:21
8x30/30 - 10:35 / 10:56 / 10:49 / 11:23 / 10:34 / 10:41 / 10:38 / 10:43 (Average - 10:47)
Cooldown (1 mile) - 13:17
For the most part, I feel like I kept it pretty consistent. The one repeat of 11:23 was on a slight incline. I was shooting for around 1 mile race effort but probably ended up a little above that but definitely shy of 5K effort. I really concentrated on staying relaxed. It was a different feeling stretching out my stride like that. It reminded me that I need to work on my flexibility.
