Holy Intervals!

Even though I woke up and walked Maggie in a very groggy state, I kicked some butt today on the roads! 98% humidity didn't phase me.

I am a fan of intervals... and today it showed. I made every mark! I was to do 3 miles worth. Here are my 200m splits: (aiming for an 11:15 pace)
11:08
9:58
10:23
10:03
10:09
9:54
10:27
9:50
10:15
10:26
10:11
9:18

Wow wow! My recovery pace generally consisted of a bit of walking and then a slow jog until the next interval began. It was just GREAT! Perhaps I should interval my way through the Elvis 5K.

I so envy you, running well in high humidity. That slows me down to a crawl.
Congratulations.

Awesome intervals!!

I'm still stuck on your previous post though, you have a Target in your neighborhood! Sigh, I want a Target that's closer than 45 miles. Is it wrong for me to be jealous 'cause you have one within walking distance? LOL!
