Distance: 5:96 miles
Weather: Cool and cloudy
Abbreviated workout today as a result of a crowded work schedule. Dashed out between conference calls. Did a 1.5 mile warm up at about 7:11 pace from office to the Boulder High School track, located across Boulder Creek from the school. Plan was to do 5x1-mile, but due to time constraints I only got in 2x1-mile (5:50 and 5:39). About half the track was still snow covered, although someone had shoveled a one-lane path. There still was a 15-meter section with slushy snow. Took a bit more circuitous route back to the office and got in another two miles at a 7:10 pace.
Good hard run. Would have liked to get in another three repeats at the track, but was happy to get the last two miles at a tempo pace.
Average HR - 151; Max: 173 - at end of second mile repeat.
