Running faster.

on Thursday, June 19, 2008 at 11:50 PM

Did about 8 miles this morning including 6x600m at the track with 90s jog recoveries.   Wanted to do these at  about 6:25 pace or so. 


Lap Time Pace HR Max
02:21.6 06:19.8 179
02:20.8 06:17.7 182
02:20.3 06:16.3 182
02:23.9 06:26.0 183
02:21.9 06:20.6 184
02:22.6 06:22.5 182

So most of them were a bit fast which i'm not sure is good or bad.  I haven't quite figured out what a comfortable "fast" pace is yet.  I'm still pretty sure that faster than 6:20 pace is a little beyond my acceptable discomfort level for an entire 5k.   Will gun for the 20 min 5k though.  My only fear is that the course is hilly.  The course is down by the water and it an out an back, but I'm getting the feeling that it goes up an embankment and then back down.   Also it looks like it's going to warm up a bit on Saturday morning.  Note quite hot, but warmer than it's been these last few days. 

Will probably do a 2 miles tomorrow morning with a couple of strides to prep.
