Mile Repeats

*Check out some of most recent posts if you haven't!

Getting Engaged in Key West
Also, I've recently updated my "about me" page!

Mile repeats are probably my least favorite track workout. I feel as though I should do more than three of them, but then I remember that I'm basically sprinting them (just slightly slower than 5K pace), so three is enough! If they were at 10K or 1/2 marathon pace maybe I could do more!

Wednesdays track workout: 3x1600 w/3 min. rest Goal pace: 6:48

This is the third time that I've run this workout with the track team. I cannot for the life of me find in my running log one of them, but the other I did.

6/16/10 - 6:59, 6:53, 6:57

1/5/10 - 6:41, 6:37, 6:41

I actually felt pretty good for the first two. The last two laps of #3 were pretty tough! It was a quick workout and over fast! Warmed up w/a mile and a half and cooled down with half a mile to make it an even 5 for the day!

The rest of the week:
Monday - 6.1 miles total w/2 tempo miles in 7:21 and 7:01
Tuesday - Easy 7 in 59:23
Wednesday - Track
Thursday - slept in b/c of thunderstorm
Friday - Easy 6 in 51:57
Saturday - 1.5 w/dog and upper body and abs at gym

Tomorrow is my long run ... easy 15 miler!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
