3/13 Progression run

Kinda proud of myself. I knew it was going to be a tough workout this morning, and it was, but I finished it.

Planned:
15-20 min warm up (9:00)
25 min progression run (6:45)
15 min warm down (9:00)

Like the last progression run I did, I altered this to be, well, a little more progression-ey. I split the fast section into two parts, finishing with the fastest part, then continuing to the cool down.

Actual:
15 minutes @ 9:00 pace
15 minutes @ 7:00 pace
10 minutes @ 6:45 pace
15 minutes @ 9:00 pace

I was tiring at the end of the 1 minute 7:00 pace section, but still bumped it up to 6:45 pace. Felt good for five minutes, but the second five were tough. Made it through, though, and 9:00 pace felt like a slow trot. Hard to believe that 3-4 weeks ago I was struggling with 7:00 pace in 3 minute intervals...

Hey- good job for pushing through it and not stopping. It's always better to slow down or lower incline than to stop. :)
