Tonight we did a mile of warm-up, and then 4 x 1 mile repeats (with a 2:30 break in between each repeat) at Gibbons Park in London. It was cool out -- roughly 4 degrees C. -- and with a wind from the north. But, overall, I felt good and relatively strong the whole way. I did most of my repeats with Bernie Laforte -- who had to continue on and do a total of 7 because his marathon was approaching soon. Anyhow, while I was targeting 7 mile repeats, I came in ahead of pace each time. Here are my splits:
As you can see, I pushed it for the last mile -- and felt good pretty much the whole way. Less than a month until the Forest City Half!
