Sooooo tired this morning, sooooo not feeling 1600 repeats. BUT I got up at 5am and did them anyway.
10 min warm up run
5 x 1600's at 7:13s; 120 sec float
5 min cool down.
7.15 miles total
It's nice that pace no longer hurts my legs....it still taxes my energy though. Each repeat my HR was between 183-188 = AT. #3 was hard, #4 was very hard and #5 I wanted to quit. Energy was just not there and it was a struggle to pull through the last 3 minutes on #5. But who would I be if I quit? I'm not a quitter. So on I ran, mission accomplished.
Pilates will probably own me and my afternoon swim is up in the air at this point. Depends upon how well I recover.
