This IS the Half of it
At any rate, except for the slow half, all of these were faster than my last go-around of half intervals. Yay. Oh, and how about that consistency for my warmup/cooldown miles? Rockin' it like a hurricane...
Somewhere during that third interval, I hit a pace that felt effortless. I mean, I was running around an 8 min pace, but my breathing smoothed out, my legs kept churning, and I felt like I was motoring along with very little strain.
It was pretty weird in an awesome way. It only lasted maybe 10 or 20 seconds, but while it did last, I was in bliss. Maybe that's what's known as the runner's high? I don't know, but it certainly was refreshing.
