Yesterday Houston and Maddy got up early to time me running Bulldog Miles on Mugshots (which I was very thankful for). Goal: try not to die.
1.5 mile w/u & c/d
-4*80 seconds on the road w/ 30-60sec rest. (Trying to average around 5:20-5:25)
-2*800m on 3rd Mugshots mile. (2:39, 2:45)
-1x1 mile on last mugshots mile (this mile is short and downhill) 5:03
(like I said, short & downhill)
-2x800m back up on Mugshots
2:34 (short), 2:38 (up!)
-4*60seconds w/ 30-60 rest. (Dying)
- the rest was short, maybe 80-90 sec between 800s and 2.5 min after the mile
I haven't ran mugshots anymore because I'm not sure how accurate it is and I'm always tempted to cut the median. Today was OK, however because I wanted to run this workout to compare to something I Did last year.
I am happy to say that this workout got better as it went on. And even though the last mile is mostly down hill and short, that's the fastest I have ever ran on it. I am starting to feel confident about my ability to run a fast 5k or 10k. I'm hoping this workout is the start of good things (times) to come later.
