VO2Max Workout

Tuesday: 8 miles general aerobic.

Wednesday: 8 miles including 5x600m @ 5k pace w/90s recoverys. I headed over to the track to this workout. We've had a recent heat wave of sorts and most of the snow and ice has melted. The track was mostly clear, but there was a bit of ice in lanes 1 and 2 on one of the turns that required me to run out in lane 3 for about 10 m. Probably didn't add much to the total distance. After the workout, I finished up with a few more miles at general aerobic at about 9:15 pace or so.

I did the first one way too fast at a 6:06 pace. The other ones averaged around 6:30. Last time ,I did this workout, I actually was able to do it a tad faster, but last time, i was pretty much pooped after the 600m. I think I could have gone a little farther this time. Not sure if I could push this pace to 1600m though.

Split Pace
02:16.5 06:06.1
02:25.2 06:29.5
02:25.6 06:30.5
02:25.2 06:29.5
02:26.8 06:33.8
