Workout Recap: Brutal Mile Cutdown

Last hard workout of the week:

2 miles easy
1 mile @ 6:45
1min rest
1 mile @ 6:30
1min rest
1 mile @ 6:15
1min rest 
1 mile @ 6:00
1 mile easy

After a long, dynamic warmup and 2 easy miles, it was go-time. I opted to change into my Brooks Asterias for the hard miles, which was a good call. 

My splits were right on through the first three miles – 6:40, 6:30, 6:14…. but finally the heat picked up and my legs gave out on the last mile: 6:25. I almost quit halfway through and was just glad to finish. 

Not exactly a confidence-builder heading into the weekend, but at least it’s finished. My feet hurt a bit, but they weren’t terrible. Ice bath. 

Easy miles this weekend.
