3/4 Intervals

Just about a perfect workout this morning. Felt like I pushed it, but not too far. Didn't feel like I wasn't going to make it, but it was close. The heaviness that I felt in my legs yesterday is gone, now they feel pumped up and strong.

Planned:
15 min warm up (9:00)
4 x 6 min intervals (6:30) with 3 min easy jogs (10:00) in between,
15 min warm down

So I'm still not up to doing intervals at 6:30, but I did do them below 7:00 pace today. I think it was set at 6:53, which is just slightly under my target race pace. At this point, I can't imagine doing an hour and a half at that pace, but - that's what training's for, and we'll see how it goes.

Actual:
15 min warm up (9:15)
4 x 6 min intervals (6:53) with 3 min easy jogs (10:00) in between,
12 min warm down

Seems to me that you're right on track with your training- even if you're not where you are with your times yet, your legs are coorperating and stepping up the pace. Enough puns for you? :)

from recent experience, there are many days were it seems i can barely hold race pace for 2 minutes, or a mile at a time, but if you put in the work, you'll be pleasantly surprised how long you can hold it on race day.
