I left this afternoon for a scheduled 10 miler, but as I passed the high school, I turned right into the parking lot and on to the track and proceeded to run an AeT run instead. Yesterday got too busy and I didn't get a run in, so I was running on somewhat rested legs today. 2 mile warm-up, 5 miles at AHR 153-157, 2 miles warm-down. All in all, very pleased with the results at this time of the year. It's funny how you get elevation gain on a flat track... AHR 155, Avg Pace 6:59 for the 5 miles of the test.
During the 2nd AeT mile I had to stop and tie my shoe (7:05), or else all miles would have been 7:00 or faster. These results without having done any "speed" work since last fall before the Indianapolis marathon in November.
