*Shout out to my daughter who turned 39 today*! HaPpY BiRtHdAy Larissa!!! :) :)
Today's workout: 4x1 mile @9:45 pace with 3 min recovery between, 1 mi WU, 1 mi CD
34F, cloudy, 8mph NWN wind. Pre-run ate one Activia, 6 oz. water. Warm up mile going north with headwind was cold (11:48). Paused briefly (30 sec.) to stretch before beginning mile repeats. First mile interval was a bit fast (9:15) with some tailwind in the first 0.6 mile going east. Turned around going west with head wind and ominous storm was NO fun! Second mile interval was 9:40. Almost puked gagging on the phlegm (DARN asthma) during the 3 min recovery walks...yes I had to walk...not pretty! Third mile interval was 9:23 still going west with headwind but slightly on decline. Fourth mile interval was 9:25 going east with slight incline.
Had to dodge the strollers brigades both ways/times. There're about 6 mothers with their double strollers, and twice that many babies and toddlers on razors and tricyles, hogging the trail. They've been playing on the trail the last few times I was running there. Also had to dodge dogs of various sizes and friendliness, and horse poop, with me wheezing like a freight train passing them!!! Haha!
Finished the work out with still 0.3 mile from home. So the cool down was 1.3 miles. 7 miles total in 1:15:08. AP: 10:46.
