2/19 Intervals

Whew! That was fun this morning. Felt kind of logey starting out on my warm-up, but felt much better once I started the intervals...

Planned:
15 min warm up (9:00)
6 x 4 min intervals (6:30) with 2 min easy jogs (8:00) in between,
15 min warm down

I did 7:00 pace on the intervals because the fast ones killed me last week, and knocked the "easy jog" to 9:30 pace to rest (because of a conversation with my friend Chris, who said it seemed a little fast for "rest"). Felt so good after five of them, that I did the last at 6:45.

Actual:
10 minute warm up (9:00)
5 x 4 min intervals @ 7:00 pace with 2 min easy jogs (9:30 pace) in between,
11 minute cool down
6.8 miles in 55 minutes.

It's good that you're finding out what type of workouts work best for you, even if it's not exactly in the magazine you're taking them from. It's better to modify than to quit, or feel like you're not doing a good job just because you're not staying "to the T" with the manual. Good for you!
