Training for a Sprint Duathlon… Training Days – Aug 24, 2012

Did 8k run. Hoping to do a little longer distance. I heard that increasing the distance and practicing sprints will help my race pace. I felt I could have definitely pushed myself more. It gave me confidence to push harder at the shorter distances. Pacing was somewhat usual even at the longer distance. Times per lap for the 20 laps were:

1:52,131
2:00,149
1:58,152
1:54,155
1:57,156
1:58,156
1:50,158
1:53,160
1:55,159
1:53,158
1:58,159
1:49,159
1:56,161
1:55,160
1:55,159
1:53,161
1:55,161
1:58,160
1:49,162
1:44,165
Total = 38:10
Avg hr 157
Peak hr 167

There were warm and cool pockets of air as I ran the track. The cool pockets were really refreshing. I got to watch another sun rise.

I find it funny that my heart goes up and my times get worse as the laps go on.
