WORKOUT: 20-MINUTE TEMPO, 6 MIN REST, 18-MINUTE TEMPO, 5 MIN REST, 5X45 SECOND PICKUPS, 5X20 SECOND PICKUPS
I met Bryant, Trace, and Jason at Kent's. We warmed up 5 miles along the rail trail to Gentile and backtracking to Hill Field Rd. Trace and Jason continued an easy run, while Bryant and I started our workout. We ran 20 minutes on gradual downhill at 5:19/mile pace. 18 minutes on gradual uphill and some icy patches at 5:16/mile pace. Then I averaged 4:16/mile pace for the 45s and 3:59/mile pace for the 20s.
I felt WAY better than Wednesday! The temps were quite cold and when we picked up the pace my lips and nose went numb for a bit, but then warmed up fine. It was nice to get in some faster paces despite the cold, snow, and ice outdoors...I'm sick of fast workouts on treadmills!
