Finally summoned the will to do an for real interval workout not on a treadmill!

4.25 mile warm-up that included a handful of striders. Then 6 X 800 meters with a 400 meter recovery.

2:39, 2:44, 2:41, 2:42, 2:42, 2:35 - the plan was to start out around 5k pace and drop a second or so on each one but my feel for pace on the track ain't what it used to be.

Finished with a short cool down jog back home through Sugarhouse Park., I was really glad to get this workout in. It's pretty warm today, about 80, and quite humid for Utah in June and I was glad to be able to work on getting used to running hard in the heat.

Spent all of last night and most of today at Abby's swim meet. She's pretty excited about winning her heat in 3 of her 5 races. She lowered her time in the 50 meter freestyle to 49 seconds from her previous best of 1:02. Wish I could still do that.

Thanks Bret. I'm going to try and run a halfway decent 5k next Saturday.
