Thursday Night's Speed Workout

Last night's workout was pretty simple: 6 x 400m (1/4 mile) intervals on the 102nd St. Transverse. To make it interesting Coach Bob decided that we'd run the intervals starting on the West Side of the cutoff and finish on the East Side of the cutoff. This way we'd be running uphill. After each interval we'd recover by jogging slowly back down to the West Side of the cutoff.

Becuase of the cloudy weather, I had a hard time picking up a signal on my Garmin during the warmup from the school to the transverse. Once we got to the trasverse, I was able to pick up a signal. The data displayed reflects the 6 intervals and the cooldown back to the school. Here are the splits for the intervals:
#1: 1:33
#2: 1:30
#3: 1:29
#4: 1:28 (Coach John said after this interval that #4 is almost always the fastest)
#5: 1:31
#6: 1:29
Cooldown back to the school 1.3 miles in 11:33.

Since it's 1.3 miles from the transvers to the school, I'll assume it's also 1.3 miles from the school to the transvers. Total miles for last night: 5.7 miles
