Quick update to the log.
I knew I was going to run 5 miles today, but just couldn't figure out if I wanted to do an easy run, a tempo run, or fartlek. I started off with a 2 mile warmup and quick stretch.
As soon as I took off, it wasn't an easy run. With the heat, I wasn't going to do a tempo run, so a fartlek workout it was. They are always fun. They may hurt a little, but they are the most fun of any running workout to me.
I broke the fast portions into 1/4 to 1/2 mile segments broken up with 30 second walks. I finished up with a half mile cooldown and a quick stretch of the hamstrings. Tomorrow's plan is 400 repeats on the track.
