During the week I am an afternoon runner. Ideally, I'd run in the early evening, outside, but that doesn't happen. So, I run in the afternoon, on the treadmill. And I'm fine with that. It works.
Today, though, I shook things up. Like some sort of efficient running person.
I ran in the morning.
Intervals, no less.
Yup. That was me, sipping a quick pre-run smoothie, going straight from robe to running gear, warming up and then dropping down to run speedy intervals.
I wasn't sure how it was going to work out -- I hadn't even had a cup of coffee! -- but it worked out well. I ran a nice and easy mile or so and then ran one of my favorite speed workouts.
14 x 2 minute repeats that looked like this:
- 30 seconds @ 6:48 pace
- 60 seconds slow
- 30 seconds speeding back up to pace
I cooled down for a half mile or so and basked in my success.
