Six 1 mile repeats

Our 60 miles per week schedule had us running four 1 mile repeats at 10 seconds below the desired goal marathon pace. Now on the 75 mile per week plan, we get six miles to do. Each is separated by 400m of jog recovery, which for me was slow to get my breath and heart rate down again.

John, Daniel and Judy came to do this workout at the bridge but not on the bridge. Matt found us after two intervals and did the last four ahead or with us.

The wind was noticeable and coming from the east/southeast. That made the odd numbered intervals tougher heading due east for the fist half. I believe the buildings shielded us from some of it once we went around the turn & headed north.

My mile intervals times today were: 6:32, 6:27, 6:32, 6:26, 6:30, 6:28. It was a good workout, my legs felt used after on the seemingly endless 2 miles of cooldown.
