4 x mile

This morning’s workout: 1 mile warm up, 4 x 1 mile with 1/2 mile recoveries, 1 mile cool down.  7.5 miles total.

Alarm set for 4:53am.  Coffee pot set to automatical brew at 4:55am.

Drank some water, drank 1.5 cups (small mug!) of coffee, ate a banana, bathroom … headed out about 5:15am.

This was my 1st 4 x mile (it’s been 3 x mile up until this morning).  My goal was simply “faster.”  I wanted each mile to be hard. To hurt. To be holding on to finish.

Success!

7:16-6:53-6:35-6:37

The pieces are falling into place.  3.5 weeks until the HALF.

    Impressive! Think you’re looking for a PR in the 1/2!
