WooHoo! Today I had an amazing run!
Today's run was a speed workout and I decided to run 800 metre intervals. The course I chose to run had a nice decline for about 4.5 km going out, but coming back, I'd have to climb that same route and I was worried I would be too tired. Well forget that, I had no problems with the return leg - and my time has improved so much, that I'm finally under 6:00/km as an average pace. There were some pretty major hills on the route as well!
Speed work really pays off - and hey, I think I'll keep it up. I sure like going fast!
