Thursday Speedwork

Today's plan calls for a Speedwork Run. 

DC Bike Path: 1/2 Marathon Training, Speedwork. Dist: (6.42)mi. Pace-avg: (16:42). Speed-avg: (3.6)mph. Speed-max: (5.7)mph. Burned: (680) Calories. 

Plan: Run a total of (6.0)mi., including 3x (1600)m repeats @ a (15:00) pace, and (800)m repeats at an easy pace after each run.
Actual: Run/walk (6.42)mi., bracketed by a (1.0)mi. warm-up walk, and a (1.x)mi. cool-down walk.
Fuel: Pre-run: (2x) pkts. Sport Beans (Grape); Mid-run: (water); Post-run: Glass of Gatorade (Orange), Banana, Dinner.

Lots of people out in the park today. The run was good, but very tiring. I was just barely able to keep the running intervals near the recommended pace of (15:00).

Splits: Mile (1): (14:30); Mile (2): (14:58); Mile (3): (15:49).

Other News: My 2XU compression tights in size MT finally arrived! I was able to exchange them at the store for the size M that I originally purchased. And as advertised, the new pair fit properly, i.e. the waist goes up over my hip-bones without having to tie the waist cord. Huzzah! I think I will wear them during my training run tomorrow, and also during the 408K run in San Jose.
