More speed workouts
Today I did a 5K prep workout that involved some arm pumping and huffing and puffing around Lake Merritt. I did a longer warm up and then started up on 3 minute intervals. I tried doing them at 5K effort, which was sub 7:07 pace today :) The first couple intervals almost felt too easy. And I let myself go all out for the final interval---6:58 pace. This was a tough workout, but I'm really having fun with the workouts that my coach is giving me!! I think my winter-running has also been aided by the downright balmy weather that we're experiencing in the Bay Area.
