Day Two: Five miles with Intervals
What you get is a total of the two miles at the beginning and the end of the run. I was pretty surprised that they were within a second of each other. I've really been trying to maintain a steady pace and not speed up as I get to the end of the run.
And how about those intervals? The schedule calls for an 8 minute pace; I ended up with anywhere from a 7:12 to a 7:28 pace. I rested until my heart rate had dropped below 100 after each interval instead of what I've been doing (walking for the next quarter mile.) I sure like the results better doing them this way.
