4/12 easy run

So I had stayed home for two days with a sick little girl, and was afraid that I was getting sick myself - little lump in the back of my throat, mild headache... I declined a long training run with a friend, thinking that I'd rather do the long stuff on Sunday and give myself a day to fight off the cold. Seems to be working - I did an easy run this morning and the lump in my throat seems to be gone. Still have a headache, but I think that's more to do with the kids right now...

Planned:
30-35 minute run, finish with 6 x 20 second strides (mile pace) with 1 min rests in between

I didn't do the finishing strides, partly because I didn't want to stress myself too much, and partly because it's a pain to do them on the treadmill. By the time you've got it up to speed, it's almost time to bring it back down again. Not worth it for anything under about 3 minutes...

Actual:
30 minutes @ 8:15 pace
3.64 miles in 30 minutes
