Sprint Mommy Sprint!
My goal today was to do some speed work. I love intervals and I love speed training, really I do. And I am loving it even more because I am beginning to see the payoff in terms of increased speed and endurance. Yeah Running Mom!
Towards the very end of my sprint intervals my Nike+ got a little hung up. It honestly reported that I was going 0 mph....how funny since I was running my fastest sprint yet. It took a couple of minutes for it to register what I was really running even though it immediately adjusted from 0 mph to 3 mph. Trust me, I was indeed running faster than that! I wonder if my unit is getting a bit old....
Regardless, I ran 3 minute sprint durations today with appropriate rest intervals between. I felt really good being able to maintain the faster pace for a longer duration. My general plan was for my sprints to be 1 mph faster than my recovery pace and I stuck to it...okay, at the end I increased it by more but that is just me.
My approximate total distance: 3.35 miles
My approximate overall pace: 8'57" (and I was being really conservative in that calcualation)
My mental state: Awesome! I was feeling good and didn't even let the technological oopsie bother me.
