6.5 miles speed work.
With my attitude in check this morning, I got up at 6am and headed over to the park to do a little speed work. I warmed up with 1/2 mile of walking, followed by alternating 1/4 mile (400m) and 1/2 mile (800m) repeats with rest intervals of 1/4 mile in between for a total of 6.5 miles. I was good and sweaty and covered in bugs when I was finished, and my hamstrings were a little sore, but I felt like it was a good run. When I got home I also did 30 minutes of Pilates.
