Mile Repeats - 4 x 1 mile...

Tonight we did mile repeats at Thompson Arena. 8 times around the track followed by a 2 lap rest. Repeat 4 times. I aimed for 7:20 per mile, thinking that if I could keep it slower for the first 3 miles, I'd be able to ramp it up for the last one. Didn't go well. Here are my splits:

3:14 rest
3:34 rest
4:02 rest

So, progressively slower as the laps went on. 7:24 average pace per mile. Clearly not in the shape I was last fall. Amazing how quickly one loses it! Hopefully I'm able to regain it as quickly.
