Post Happy Hour Four
Friday evening didn't go quite as I had described. After work, I ended up at local favorite The Winking Lizard for dinner, and I couldn't pass up a Franziskaner on draught. I also couldn't pass up the Bleu Shroom Burger, which made for a melodious four-miler afterward. I felt fast, but was woefully slow.
Making Up for Lost Time
Bless me, Johnnie, for I have sinned. My last track session was 16 days from Saturday. I had to get back out on the Oval of Doom. The schedule called for 11 repeats of 400 meters. Here is the statistical rundown:
11 x 400 meters
- Goal pace: Sub-1:45 per interval (7:02 per mile)
- Fastest Lap (6): 1:37.37 (6:30 per mile)
- Slowest Lap (7): 1:43.9 (6:54 per mile)
- Average pace: 1:39.6 (6:38 per mile)
- Total distance: 7.2 miles
Long Coast on E
By the time I got to the 10-mile mark of Sunday's 14-miler, my legs felt empty. I finished with a two-minute positive split on the second half, but averaged 10:07 per mile overall--right in my long run pace zone.
