A New Monday

Today was a different sor of day. It started out with the normal run/walk routine and included a bathroom break at one of our normal stops. But at roughly the 2 mile point I noticed even with a run/walk interval I was pulling ahead of my partners. So I slowed down a bit to let them catch up and to verify the route we were taking today. At the 3 mile mark I was again ahead and decided to test out the coaching I had gained from yesterday's workout and run in to our finish point.

I ran the final 1.56 miles and felt great when I was done. My heart rate never exceeded 158 during that part of the run and any time my breathing became labored at all I just slowed down until I had it more under control and it worked!!

So today's numbers are a bit skewed, but definitely offer negative splits again:

Total Distance: 4.56 miles
Total Time: 1:02:46
Pace: 13:46
Avg HR: 131
Max HR: 158

Mile 1: 14:22 min/mi
Mile 2: 16:06
Mile 3: 14:24
Mile 4: 11:36
.56 Mi: 11:14
