I have two worrisome runs this week (I've been having weeks with three so this is a small cutback). Today's run called for 6x1200m repeats @10k pace. It would be a good workout to do on the track or a bit easier to do on a treadmill where I can punch in the paces - I'd still have to do the physical work, just less mental. But, I picked the horseshoe route in Westlake. There's a little bit of rolling but I can avoid any of the bigger hills. I go out one way for the first repeat and then back the same way for the second one to end up where I started. It shouldn't be that difficult since there is a 2.5 minute jog/rest between sets, should be easier then running 4.5 miles @10k pace. Yet, I still struggle a little bit to keep an even pace with the starting and stopping.
But, got through them one by one, hitting the paces I wanted with results being: 6:36, 6:43, 6:37, 6:44, 6:48, 6:39
Repeats were sandwiched between 2 mile warm up and 2 mile warm down at easy paces.
Weather was pretty good, started in mid 70's but around 80 for the warm down.
