Run Report 6/12

Intervals 3x 15/3:45 Attempted
Today, I was supposed to run the Robins Roundup 5K race, but it was cancelled due to lightning. This evening, a bit before sunset, I decided to go run. I planned on doing three 15 minute runs with a 4:1 run/walk ratio. I probably just shouldn't have gone so fast, but it just felt great to pick up the pace, and I wanted to see if I could actually keep it up. The first 15 minutes were great. My average pace for it was 9:08/mi, covering 1.64 miles. I walked for 3:45, stopping to take off my shirt. The storms have taken a lot of the humidity, but it's still a bit warm. The second run, I went over to the campsites again, but stopped after only a bit more than 8 minutes. I was starting to get a little bit of a stitch, and I used the sprayers at the fish cleaning station to cool myself a bit. Then I started the run back home, and went almost a mile in a little over 9 minutes before I called it good enough and walked the rest of the way. Running, I did 3.49 miles in 27:20, for a 9:16/mi pace. Total distance with walking was 4.07 miles in 43:35, which is a 10:43/mi pace, not bad considering I was actually standing still part of the walk laps. I really liked running faster, and think next time I might go for 4:1 again, but maybe 10x or 11x 4/1 intervals, just dividing it into more laps and see what my overall pace ends up being.
