Track Workout

I cannot remember the last time I did intervals on a track. Since I have Prospect Park nearby with mile markers every 1/4 mile, I just haven't needed to. But today I went down to the track in Red Hook and did 5x1000m at 5K pace. It was pretty fun to get out and do the workout, especially with the nice weather. My splits were about as even as they could get:

4:06
4:07
4:07
4:06
4:03

I felt pretty good the whole run - Nice to bounce back from last week's frustration and my long run on Saturday with a good, strong workout. I added on some extra miles in my cooldown by going out to Van Brunt and then back up to Park Slope on 3rd Street.

Distance: 9.45 miles
Time: 79 min
