Speedwork went well this week under cooler temperatures in Sacramento. I had to dodge a soccer team doing laps a few times, but things could hardly have gone better.
Intervals: 5 x 800 meters Goal pace: sub-3:36 Lap 1: 3:29.00 Lap 2: 3:25.50 Lap 3: 3:27.37 Lap 4: 3:34.13 Lap 5: 3:31.25 Average: 3:29.45 Total distance: 5 miles
No red fails for the second consecutive week, so I’ll have to keep adding a repeat until I get one. Next Wednesday it’ll be 6 x 800.
Today I did a seven-mile tempo run at 8:39 average pace. I eventually have to bring that down about 30-35 seconds, but I’m making good progress.
