13C, overcast, cool.  An 8 mile run including intervals.  Did a warm up, then 1 mile at 90% with quarter mile recovery jog, followed by 8x quarter mile at 90% and 0.1 mile recovery, then cool down to home.  Loved it.  Wore TomTom watch so didn’t have heart rate data, but ran hard and the following pace graph shows the sprints nicely.

Today’s pace chart showing mile effort followed by 8x quarter mile sprints

It was cool in just a t-shirt, but enjoyed it.  Pleased with the mile sprint at 7:17 min/mile.  The heel niggle had eased before I started sprinting.  Left hip/quad niggle was less noticeable today.  Felt strong throughout, a very positive workout.

6C, cold, sunny with clear skies.  An 8 mile run commute into work.  The plan called for mile repeats today, so after the first 2 miles did 3x mile repeats, then cool down run into the office.  

Enjoyed it, intervals gave me something to focus on, felt like a worthwhile effort. The crisp weather was lovely.  Drank 200ml water.
