I am beyond happy with this run. I decided to head to the track. I had seen one on my long run around Regent’s Park a couple of weeks ago
, and thought I could really do with a track workout. And no one was around! I didn’t have to worry about dodging people on sidewalks!
It was a two mile warm up run to get there. When I got there a did a couple of drills, but nothing really to write about. A few high knees and straight leg kicks, then I was ready. I was just hoping to keep my pace around my 10k mark, maybe a little faster. I would be happy with 8:30min/mile splits.
Was I pleasantly surprised with my splits? Yes, yes, I was. The 4th repeat was tough, and I slowed my pace a little, but kept thinking ‘let’s be comfortable with being uncomfortable’. The 5th was also tough. I just pushed through.
That’s: 8:02, 7:55, 7:58, 7:47, and 7:53. I am so happy with this! And I even managed a 2.5 mile cool down to finish it off!
