Night Intervals

Mo-rest day. probably a good idea even though it could've been toughed out.
Tu-night intervals 1M-2M-1M using Bowker Flats for w\u and c\d.

Made the mistake of timing using the Garmin, programmed to auto-track mile splits, so even after writing them down on paper it's hard to say what the true numbers are.

Anyhow, they are not fascinating or fast: Intervals 8-10, 1M-2M-1M @ slightly slower than 10k effort. 3 minutes, 5 minutes recovery.1M-6:55, 2M-7:13/7:06, 1M-6:44.

UPS truck was doing deliveries spewing obnoxious exhaust, sideline Kenyans run up against this all the time with regular traffic. Night vision not as acute or developed to quickly sidestep potholes, snow and ice, sideline deal with it you didn't get hurt and the temperatures were in the low 30s. In retrospect would it have been better to try these on the mill?

Easy 5-8 planned for today. Oh yeah, gotta go shovel more snow.

  2. That's gotta be really tough running intervals at night w/ low visibility AND ice/snow. I'm sure those conditions slowed you considerably - I bet if you ran that on the mill or during the day on solid ground you'd have gone appreciably faster.

    Good luck w/ your training!
