Tonight’s Mile Repeats

Thursday nights have now become my night for speed intervals at the indoor track. Tonight’s workout ended up being the same as last Thursday’s workout with 5 x 1 mile repeats the intended workout.

I am pleased with my times from tonight. I ended up going a little faster than last week. Tonight my times were 6:31, 6:37, 6:43, 6:32, 6:29 whereas my average was closer to 6:40 last week.

I think I am starting to notice a pattern with my speed intervals. You’ll notice that my slowest one tonight was the middle one. I am not sure why but that seems to be a regular occurrence for me. For some reason I start quick, slow down in the middle and come back strong for my last couple of intervals.

So far I am enjoying the ability to run at the indoor track. It is nice to be able to run in short sleeves and shorts in the middle or winter, especially on nights like tonight when the temperature is barely above freezing and raining.

Do you regularly incorporate speed intervals in your training? Do you run indoor over the winter months?
