A little pick-me-up!!!

I've got a lot of work to do today so let me get to this while it's still fresh. This morning, I did some 30/30's, 10 of them to be exact. Here are the stats.

Total distance - 4.85 miles
Venue - Memorial Park
Format - 2 mile WU / 10x30/30 / 2 mile CD
Warmup - 2 miles @ avg. 14:03 pace
10x30/30 - 11:28/13:31, 11:21/13:50, 11:10/14:24, 10:29/13:11, 10:19/13:00, 10:26/13:26, 9:58/12:51, 10:12/13:56, 9:57/14:17, 9:22/15:01
Cooldown - 2 miles @ avg. 14:00 pace

Boy, my splits were all over the place but it's all good and it's all a learning experience. I really felt good this morning and was humpin' it on the last 4 repeats and resisted the urge need to stop and walk after the last 30 seconds. I kept it going and eased nicely into my cooldown.

"30/30's, eh? What kind of pace were you maintaining?"

"I dunno, 9-somethin's"

Vic, I just started reading your blog. I'm impressed with your training and wish you luck preparing for NYC. I've run it and while I was an ING employee. It's an amazing experience. Keep up your great running and posting! Tom
