AM: Ran 10 x 1000m repeats this morning. They were all run fairly easy. I don't want to do anything too fast or too hard during my building phase.
I ran the first 1000m as kind of a warm up, and ran it in 5:15. The following repeats, I tried to run each one progressively faster up to repeat 5, then run them progressively slower again up to repeat 10. I tried various stride lengths and cadences to find one that felt the best for me.
I was surprised with repeat No. 9. I was aiming at 4:50. The stride length and cadence that I ran this repeat at was very comfortable and easy. I was so surprised to come in at 4:14. I think I need to commit that cadence to memory.
Even though the goal was to come back to 5:00 on the last repeat, I was not comfortable in going that slow. Ended with a slow cool down.
I love 1000m repeats, and this was a SUPER fun workout. I will try to run more later in the day.
